Picking away and singing the blues • Six Word Saturday Oct. 26, 2019

Picking away and singing the blues is my first entry into #sixwordsaturday.

Picking away and singing the blues.

For Six Word Saturday.

Came across this blues-y busker on a trip to Valencia, Spain. I was so caught by him, his appearance, his repertoire and his introvert way of performing (the only way blues can properly sang, in my mind), that I stayed. For more than an hour or so. Afterwards I gave him a €20 note.

To my surprise he objected and wanted to give me at least half back in the small change he had. But I told him nowhere in Valencia, or in the world for that matter I could listen to blues like that, sitting on the front row for that little money. Bought his CD, which was called ‘Blues Lines‘.

For more, see for instance some New York lines, or simply see the sidebar.
