One Man Bands

A classic busking song

I’m sitting here playing a song called “San Francisco Bay Blues”, written by American One Man Band Jesse Fuller. I think of him as our Patron Saint. Busking is a culture in its own right – busking, street music… Any attempt to bring it out of the twilight always seems to go wrong, because it’s so much a thing of the moment – it’s very difficult to capture that quality of busking in any kind of broader structure. But I live in the belief that one day it will be possible.
