There are buskers who perform way above the level of most of their peers. Andy Blue is one such. He’s lived in Waiheke for years, but recently he’s come to live in Wellington, and he loves it. He says Auckland is difficult, “They won’t let you play many spots, but in Wellington it’s a real pleasure, there are lots of musicians here. It’s a great place.” You’ll find him up and down Cuba St, by the library and other likely places. He doesn’t chat, he just plays, and is completely involved in his guitar. Last week outside the library there was a constant audience enjoying his music which one bystander described as “poppy flamenco”.
