During a trip downtown for lunch I came across Ashley Walshbarr doing a solo set on 4th Avenue. She sang and played electric guitar as people passed by as they hurried to there destinations. A number of them stopped to complement her playing and even request a tune.
Some dropped a coin or two into her guitar case. Walshbarr is also part of a local band called Sweater Kittens. She was appearing as part of the Artisans Alive series which ran until the end of August. She told me that she had appeared downtown, a few times throughout the summer, as part of this series.
