Last July 26th, i played in the streets of Norwich, in aid of RSPB, one of the oldest Charities in the UK.
We met in the morning, and together with other artists, we played few slots in the busiest street of the city, Gentleman’s Walk, in the middle of the hay Market.
A band of young kids set up in the sunshine before me, so i had the time to look around and see people’s reaction.
Lalita, a good friend of mine and volunteer for the charity, organized the event and even one of the policemen, turned out to be a member of RSPB !
I love the spot where we set up. the acoustic is good, and there’s a strong passage. People would stop and listen and some bought cd’s as well !
My mate Terry Adams, amazing singer and musician, agreed to come down and set up after me. He sung famous jazz songs for the punters…!
The little Walhid, a young kid from Syria, always love to listen to us buskers. He was really into Uncle Terry swing jazz !!!
Daughters and mothers dancing together in the middle of the street…this is the power of good music !
Many people supported the cause with spontaneous donations !
And young kids would queue up for their turn ! It’s been a great day: we played music for nature. Definitely a good cause, supporting the projects of this well enstabilished charity. We reached our goal for the day, thanks to the energy of the organizers, performers and the beautiful people of Norwich !!! More info about RSPB at https://www.facebook.com/RSPBLoveNature
