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.
