The Missus and I just got back into town after a long weekend in Asheville, NC, which I'm just about ready to go ahead and name "best place in America." It was nice to be out of the loop for a while. It was especially nice to not be online on Sept. 11. I could really do without all the "Never Forget" bullshit and jingoistic flag-waiving that tends to pop up all over social media every anniversary of that awful day.
Anyway, here are a few of the best street musicians we saw in Asheville, a city known for its buskers.
First up, the Shifty Drifters featuring the amazing Spoon Lady, a percussionist not even J.K. Simmons could find fault with.
And here she is again with guitarist/singer/harmonica player Chris Rodrigues
This is singer/songwriter/guitarist/accordianist Rae Herring
And the most fun of all, a band called "Ain't Nothing Much" Featuring another spoons player
These are only a few of the fantastic musicians that can be seen and heard on the streets of Asheville any day or night. There are more here: https://www.facebook.com/ABuskersCollective
