Takin’ it to the Street
My summer of chalking up busker festivals across the country was a great success. It was my first year of organized busking events and there were some steep learning curves to plow through, but the people and the places were a great joy. No where else can I meet such a diverse group of people in one room. Musicians, comics, contortionists, fire acts, freak show acts, magicians, visual artists, dancers, people who make bologna sandwiches with their feet, and combinations of all of the above — all in one world-wide, yet tightly knit community. It’s truly something to experience.
In a warm and dry climate I could continue drawing on the pavement, but winter hits hard in Canada. Now it’s time to focus on the other festivals. Film, to be exact. Be sure to watch for my updates on that front.
