This chap was in Worcester playing what looked like a large battered Wok. The sound it made was not bad, a bit like a steel drum.

Sensitive and interesting portrait, Bill...very nice job!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ray. He appeared to be in his own bubble playing and most people passed him by without a second glance
I love the light on his face!!!
Bill Phillips: Thanks E. He seemed oblivious to all around him and most people seemed to completely ignore him too which was a shame

a fine portrait of a happy musician - I saw and listened to such a musician in Bath when we met us there -I think it is a kind of an Celtic instrument.
Bill Phillips: It was completely new to me Philine.

He seems happy enough. I wonder how much he gets form the passing public? Did you give him anything?
Bill Phillips: No idea and no I didn't. I didn't have any change on me....that's my story and I am sticking to it

This lays well alongside Professor Trims posting today, two very fine portraits.
