Street Music

If music feeds your soul, I'd like to encourage you (once again!) to see PASSIONE at The Plimoth Cinema. It's on only til 9.29, just 6 more opportunities, since it shows @ 4:30 and 7PM. It's all music, movement, art and absolutely alive - it mixes fado, rai, flamenco, jazz and portrays vividly how they all mix it up together to create a musical portrait of Naples. The following clips give an idea of the energy of the film:
Director John Turturro and some excerpts
Pistol Packin Mama  - great performance with many characters
Indifferentemente by Misia

Music on the street can be like these bursts of color suddenly seen in a sidewalk crack. It's great to come around a corner and hear surprising sound and music. Sometimes Plymouth's streets do breathe music....we ran into Hayley, singer, student and sometime barista at Kiskadee with a little crowd at the bottom of Coles Hill.
Town Brook

On Saturday night, Trillium, an open mike at Middle Street Music had a good crowd inside, but I guess they will hold their last one on Saturday, 10.29.

On many days and some nights, pass by The Metacomet, 58C Main Street (Plymouth) to hear a welcome blast of music - anyone from  Rahsaan Roland Kirk to CSNY - John keeps a steady stream of records/sound going while people browse books in his shop. Live music is an occasional treat.
Downy Woodpecker

Lots of nature sounds, too - their own music - from Town Brook and the random warbler or woodpecker. Hope that there will be much more music on the streets...
