Buskers – Leeds, Yorkshire

I was walking through Leeds city centre when I spotted the people shown in the photo above walking with musical instrument cases. Thinking there might be a photo opportunity I follwed them for a short while till they decided they had found a suitable place to set up on Commercial street, Leeds.

These buskers are 3/5’s of a local band called The Monkeywrenchers, from the left the are Medway Emmy Jane – vocals, mandolin, occasional harp and whistle, Snaggle Tooth Tim – vocals, guitar and last but not least Mademoiselle Brigitte DuBois – fiddle and band Southern Belle.

I am the worlds worst guitarist but I know what I like, I listened to them for several songs and they can play, I would like to see the full band in action.

You can listen to the band and find more info about them including upcoming gigs on The Monkeywrenchers myspace page.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
