Street Music; accordian and saw

I saw this duo playing on Saturday, they’d collected quite a crowd – including one howling dog.

So of course I had to go and look up how to play the saw. Bowing it makes it sing (produce sound), bending it changes the pitch. Apparently it’s easy to learn and (who knew!) there’s a difference between musical saws and ordinary woodwork ones.

  1. I’d never seen it live before this date – I was fascinated. (As was a small dog who seemed to want to sing along).

    Haven’t seen them since.
