Busker of the day – Conor Moor

As promised, Conor Moor is the other half of the busking duo I mentioned yesterday. Or should I say one third, since they have apparently added a bassist/guitarist today. That’s how things go on the sidewalks of Asheville. I neglected to say that they are going by the name Rich Girl  Poor Boy. I think […]

Busker of the day – Joseph Williams

Joseph is half of a duo that stopped me in my tracks in front of Mast General Store in Asheville a few days ago. He and his traveling companion, Conor Moor, have some great material and they play it pretty damn good. They impressed me enough to listen to a few songs and invite them […]

Busker of the day (again) – Vaden Landers

I hardly ever photograph buskers playing outside. But the light late Tuesday afternoon at the Flatiron was so cool, I just had to get some shots of my friend, Vaden Landers.

Busker of the day – Poorboy Krill

Singer/songwriter Stevie Lee Combs visited my Flatiron Studio today for a portrait.

Buskers of the day – Big Dawg Slingshots

The Big Dog Slingshots have been around town on and off for a couple years, but for some reason, they have escaped my talent radar, even though I have known one of them for several years. They play Western Swing music  that makes my feet go up and down. Yes, even my surgically repaired foot. […]

Busker of the day – Lyle Rickards

I can’t tell you how long I have been talking to Lyle Rickards about photographing him, but the sun, moon, and stars were never properly aligned to make it happen. I guess it took a pending solar eclipse to do the trick, because when I ran into him today downtown I asked if he would […]

Buskers of the day – Sadie & the Tramps

It’s definitely the time of year for migrant buskers in Asheville. Sadie is front and center, with Kid and Jim behind her. Kid and Jim met in Texas and have been making music together while traveling for the last three months. I’m not sure what role Sadie played, but the partnership seems to work. You […]
