...and there was music

This young accordionist in Kungsträdgården had a different business idea than I’m used to. He first asked for money and only then played his instrument. A guy apparently paid too little and he only played a few notes. But at the girls' table he stayed a long time.

He certainly does have a different approach. Your photo shows a trio having a great time together; nice to see!

I gotta applaud the lad for working it. Sounds like he's got a good deal of confidence. So, do you think he has ever heard of Zydeco?

Thanks all! I think maybe he stayed long at the girls table just for the girls, not for the money!

Coltrane_lives: I doubt he's heard of Zydeco. And thank God for Wikipedia for that matter!

This shot is amazingly good.

Also, let’s not forget that Steffe in Haninge explored the same theme a while back.
