Probably Not a Scintillating Performance

By BobbyMS
Maybe not, but I am reminded of the many occasions when world-famous musicians have played in public places in Europe and North America, and have been virtually ignored by passersby. Some of these passersby would have paid big money to hear these same musicians in a concert hall.

Too many distractions of the wifi kind perhaps, but in a concert probably very different.

Not the most enthusiastic audiences? Good street image, Bobby.

Many of these street musicians/buskers are quite good. Pity we can't hear this one to judge, but it's a great street candid, Bobby 😃🎵👍

That is a cracking street candid Bobby. Shame some people only place a monetary value on things, don't see beyond that...

A line from a song - 'it's always the ones that didn't pay that stand at the bar and talk all day.' [Steve Knightley]

Audiences who haven't paid feel no commitment to listen (or, sometimes, to let anyone else listen).

a day may come when buskers begin giving donations to passersby ...
and an excellent observation and shot, to be sure
