Seems like the buskers at Phinney Farmer’s Market have raised the bar this year. Last year it was sufficient to play one instrument at a time – like a ukulele or a saxophone. (Of course, P. K.Dwyer was multi-tasking even last year.) But last week I discovered a musician named The Gin Jars who played a kazoo, a banjo and a horn-type thing all at once. Today it was Nick Moyer, who played a combo that was new to me: a trumpet with an accordion.
This is why sketching at farmer’s markets is my favorite summertime activity: Even when it’s the same, there’s always something new.
