I Played at the Port Fairy Market!

Last weekend I had a blast, busking at the Port Fairy Market!

I was lucky enough to get to play along with my husband and my brother-in-law — two of the best musicians I know! It was fun to watch the crowd gather as we rocked “Shortening Bread,” across from our friend’s market stall where shortening bread was actually being sold out! Fun!!

Of course, it was great to see money being tossed in the guitar case, but my happiness didn’t come from the money earned busking. It came from being with people and making music with my husband and his brother!

I love watching people bounce to the rhythm as they walk by or as they stop to listen and dance. When babies begin to bounce, that’s when I know we’ve got the music right, for sure. Money that is tossed in to the case is nice and very much appreciated by us buskers, as people never have to do that — there’s no obligation for anyone to give buskers money. They do it because they want to, and I watch them in amazement and appreciation.

Of course, my smile might get a little brighter when the $5 and $10 bills get dropped in to the case. When that happens, I probably bounce a bit more, myself — enjoying the fact that other people are really enjoying the music we are making.

I had to take a break during one of the songs to rest my hand, but I had time and strength to snap iPhone photos of my hubby, Adrian, and his brother, Kevin, before getting back to playing.

After about an hour of busking, we happily spent our earnings on market food! Market food! Yum!! Thank you, Port Fairy Market friends! I hope to see you again someday. 🙂
