Summer 2011

A Street musician living in Vancouver BC.
met him yesterday while taking pictures, walking about in the westend. He plays his guitar from morning till sunset. Quite the nice man he is. i got him a chocolate bar and he handed me one of his cd’s that i have yet to listen to. but his music and voice is very good compared to a lot of street musicians i have seen downtown. He’s 61 years old and has been playing the street scene for over 10 years now…

you can hear him sing on his blogspot that someone had made for him after someone filmed a documentary about him..

ps: i’ve read rumours on youtube recently that he’s passed away a few months ago..

    Interesting story here, Adrian. He sure looks like he’s fulfilled by his music.

  • Evidently. he claims it was enough for him to know that people appreciates it when they hear or listen to him play.

    love the echo of color and the mood of the people in the far back ground as well as the foreground movement of feelings!

  • thanks Mr. Bohn. still unsure about the background though.
