Glorious afternoon! I am now in that happy, delirious sort of exhaustion.

Woody told me there were more musicians on Royal Street. Sure enough, there were two fantastic fiddlers. But I had a problem. No more small bills to tip them! So I popped in the nearest door intending to ask for change for my ten. Boy was I surprised to see all of these exquisite paintings!

This guy's guitar skills and voice really moved me. He played funk and blues. Here he is explaining about people trying to label the delta blues. He says, he's from the delta, and he plays the blues. That's the delta blues.
I also met a lady named Christine from Denmark who liked to play Joni Mitchell covers. She played Big Yellow Taxi for me.
Lastly, my favorite buskers, fiddlers John and Lyle. They were right outside of the artist's gallery. Lyle teaches fiddle lessons. I was going to buy them some beer but I left my driver's license in my suitcase. So I bought them sweet tea and cherry coke instead. John's wolf was really sweet. Watch John and Lyle perform another piece, this one an original composition, here.
