Busk Break is an ongoing field recording series documenting live performances by busking musicians and other street performers.
Abby The Spoon Lady and Jimbo Lockhart perform “Old Joe Clark”
Busk Break favorite Abby The Spoon Lady performs the classic tune “Old Joe Clark” with Jimbo Lockhart on the streets of Asheville, NC, in 2012.
For those of you who love Abby’s music, we’ll be posting more from this session, including some unseen tunes, in future posts. In addition to being an outstanding busker, Abby also has a fantastic YouTube channel of live performances.
Steve Shanafelt used to think he was a writer. Lots of other people thought he was a very good one, and they paid him to write everything from news articles to erotic comic books. Then, a few years ago, he started to realize that writing was just one very tiny piece of the puzzle. He started recording podcasts, producing field recordings of busking musicians, making short video series and learning how to make websites. Along the way, he learned lots of ways not to manage businesses and how to promote those businesses online. Now, people pay him surprisingly large sums of money to show them some of the things he's picked up.
