It’s always comforting to see Eli Harris out in the Syracuse elements playing his music.
The singer and guitarists knows the Syracuse University athletic schedule.
Carrier Dome patrons are serenaded, sweetly, regularly, through cold and sometimes really cold.
Elijah Harris and I go way back, to my decades as the music writer for the big daily. He’s a street musician with style, flair, chops, personality. And CDs. The Syracuse University students studying music have released his work on several CDs.
Harris has had his ups and downs in life. I’m always happy to see him out there again and still, doing his thing, guitar case open for contributions, other possessions at the ready for a move to the next outdoor gig.
Do you stop and listen to street musicians, and why or why not? Do you know the story of any street musicians in your part of the world? What’s the best street musician performance that you can recall, and what were the circumstances?
