I have no idea who this lady was, never seen her before.

She was stood in the High Street, opposite Guildford House (where Tourist Information is located). She looked as though she was waiting for someone, then she started to sing. No idea what she was singing, it was not in English. She had a very powerful voice.

They have played The Keystone. I suggested try Harris + Hoole.

Guildford is rapidly acquiring a name for itself for good music comparable with Brighton.

Today, bottom end of the High Street (a favourite spot), Nigel James playing. He was good.

Too many street musicians want a tenner for a CD. Too much, a fiver is far more sensible price.

I bought a CD, and was told, take two.

I said a must was be on bandcamp. I suggested Harris + Hoole and The Keystone would be good venues to play. Cafe Mila in Godalming would also be a good venue.

He played Knocking on Heavens Door for me. A rather nice thing to do. Never had anyone play music for me before. Well actually not quite true, my lovely friend Annie wrote and played.

Bottom of Guildford High Street is becoming the place to find good musicians.

Last Friday, excellent musicians, again today.

Who they were, I do not know, and I did not have time to stop and ask.

I noticed people were sat on the curb, eating their lunch, enjoying the music.

Nine pounds for an album is too much. Sell for a fiver, sell a lot more, and the word gets around. Even more so if on bandcamp.

Guildford is acquiring a name for good live music on the street, as has Brighton.
