Here in the DC area, musicians don’t play on the Metro trains at all and only rarely in or near the stations. So whenever we do encounter someone sharing their musical talent in a public place, it’s definitely a lovely surprise.
Here are a few of the musicians we’ve encountered lately, and yes, we do show our appreciation with at least a dollar or two to each!
