Playing Fair? by KBritt

As we were leaving the State Fair, I spotted this man playing his accordion. I snapped a shot as we came up to him, then asked if I could take another and dropped some money in his hat – he obliged with this wonderful pose and never missed a note of his song.
I regret that I did not get his name, or take the time to listen longer (I was with a group of tired ladies ready to go home). But I wonder where his ‘home’ is – does he have one? What is his story? I regret not taking the time….
