subway documentary, my early years

In the category of nothing is ever lost in the age of YouTube, I recently discovered this trailer from documentary film maker Jason Scianno, entitled Legends Of The Underground.  I am featured along with many other subway performers I've known over the years and luckily whom are still performing. Filmed between 1999 and 2001. It captures the beginning of my performing with the Music Under NY program.  Not sure when or if this film will ever be distributed, but Jason does a great job of capturing the essence of street performing.

Documentary Film on NY Street Musicians

Carl Kriss and Chris Viemeister stopped by to film me performing underground on a few occasions last year for a feature documentary film about New York street musicians.  The title "Give and Take" comes from a lovely description that what we do gives more than it takes.  I love that.   The film features many of my friends.  I'm excited the film now completed, has been chosen to be the the first screening at SENE Film Festival in Rhode Island April 6-10.  Here is the link to the festival, check it out.
