Interesting Location to busk… Naismith statue… one of my grade six/seven teachers, Mr. Naismith (of course), was related to Dr. Naismith, inventor of basketball.

Decided to start with Tin Whistle. Look closely at this photo. 🙂

It’s a Long Way to Tipperary

 

After busking for a couple of hours, headed to Gemmill Park and checked out the vendors there. Some cool stuff, indeed… photo to follow later. 🙂

Headliner, Heather Rankin(!), during soundcheck before her show started, asked her piano player if she had her clothespins. Yes, she said, “clothespins”, which drew my attention here. Please refer back to earlier photo with “Look closely… :)” included in the caption. 🙂 Great minds 😉

 

Heather has put together a great songlist for this show. One of my favourites is this “throwback” from “The Rankin Family” Bells
