For years we've heard about the Farmer's Market in Madison. We finally experienced it in May, but didn't get the full effect until now. It really is a BIG DEAL!
Every week there is a little more for sale and more people turn out. What got my attention this time was the street musicians. In a two block radius there were seven different musicians.First I could hear a solo drummer. He wasn't even on the main drag, but you could sure hear him. Next we happened on a couple of guys playing guitar and singing songs from Sesame Street!
Then we saw a group of electic musicians playing a bluegrass number. What caught my attention was that one of them was playing a washboard! As I got closer, I saw that another guy was playing a washtub! He was pickin a bungee cord and making some decent sound. They were a total treat to watch! I bought their CD. The group is called "Boo Bradley".
We saw a few more groups and soon ran out of dollar bills to tip with. Next week I'm getting a roll of $1 coins so I don't have to worry that the wind will blow the money away. It's pretty cheap entertainment and totally enjoyable.
