Fiddling in Jackson Square

It’s hard to take pictures in Jackson Square – the walls are all covered in Artworks for sale with signs asking for no photographs. You have to angle yourself so they don’t appear. I took these two photos at the same time I shot the photo shoot in Pirate Alley – I’d turn one way to get the guy playing the fiddle, then turn and take a picture of the photo shoot.

In the background, you can see a Lucky Dog hot dog vendor cart. These always remind me of Ignatius J. Reilly, who had a (fictitious) terrible time as a hot dog vendor in New Orleans.

  1. Do you know anything about the do’s and don’ts of busking in New Orleans?
    I am specifically interested in how the police view electronic performance
    This video of me performing with the electronic kit in Minneapolis almost got me a ticket

    Any advice would be appreciated
