Very nice - and he has the perfect stance!
Tom Wilson: He'd obviously practiced smile
i like your street musician Tom...
i still play my trumpet... but if i haven't played for a few months... Penny closes all of the windows... sound really carries across the lake....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Good for you! I played the violin when young, but had no talent for it. Since then I've tried recorder, penny whistle and clarinet smile

All amped up...I suppose he was shattering plate glass all around the place, Tom.
Tom Wilson: No - he had it well under control - and it was quite a big space - the town square.
Very nice street shot Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.

A smarter looking bloke, maybe his music was slicker?
Tom Wilson: About the same standard as the sax player.

From what Peter says I guess the sound carried a long way
Tom Wilson: It was in the town square - quite a big area, so the sound didn't really dominate.
He definitely looks the part of a real trumpeter, Tom!
Tom Wilson: He could certainly play, Ginnie.
I used to play the trumpet as a teenager.
Tom Wilson: Well done - I wish I'd picked that or the clarinet instead of the violin smile
Sweden's answer to Eddie Calvert
Tom Wilson: You're showing your age there, Bill smile In fact he's probably Croatian or Serbian smile
Nice shot, Tom, I just realised that's a speaker in his trolley.
Tom Wilson: He was obviously well prepared!
Another musical instrument makes it's way in the background too. I like music in the streets.
Tom Wilson: You might be right, Mary. Yes, music in the streets is good to hear.

He would be trumpeting the "Prince of Denmark March" in honour of the neighbours.
Tom Wilson: Could well be! I can't recall what he was playing.
What sort of music was he playing Tom, Jazz, Classical or general popular songs?
Tom Wilson: Popular latin American I think.
Well if nobody else will blow it for you...
Tom Wilson: Indeed! And he obviously knows how!
I hope the shoppers enjoyed his music.
Tom Wilson: They seemed largely indifferent - the Swedes are not used to street musicians, I think, and are horrified by the gypsy beggars they now find on their streets.
