Good Times at the Local Fair

One of the cool things about the local small fairs is that people that you may not run into are there with their children. Its easy to strike up conversations, and sometimes can lead to opportunities to ask questions about what drives them. Going doesn’t always mean to a far away place.

You can listen to him play via NPR: http://www.npr.org/2012/06/30/155989687/a-lone-trumpeter-serenades-the-national-mall
