Here are some Gypsies busking on the streets here this morning. They were LOUD and everyone put money in their pot! Buskers are called street musicians in the US.

The double-reeded instrument has been around since Old Testament days. The drummer has uses a thin stick this side of the drum and a very thick one the other side.

I like that...hornpipe? I think I saw another man playing one in Kosovo in the news a couple of days ago.
It makes me think of the clarinet again. I think I could learn to play one...but I still like the sound of the lowly whistle better!

Cool!

That musician's playing pretty close to that guy's ear. Do they put money in the pot to get them to move on down the street? :lol:
