Helen Stratford: all About Culture

I was afraid to even imagine what it's like to sing in the streets, because people laugh at! However, everything turned out quite differently. After ten minutes of singing around my friend met a decent crowd of tourists and townspeople. After each piece was deafening sound of applause and whistles, and guitar case quickly filled with foreign currency. An hour later, a friend stood up and bowed to the audience, and we left. I asked him how he manages to stay calm in front of a crowd, and he said – Try it yourself and you will understand everything. I must admit I was scared and he could not decide on this act.

However, once I called and invited to gather in the evening on the street – to play together. He agreed. You can imagine my fear when I tried to force myself to sit down and get a guitar from its case. I said to myself, 'It's so easy! Sit down and sing, just for yourself! " Anything like that, I could not bring myself to do it. Had to be postponed until better times.

The next time we went together again. I decided that I should force myself to overcome this irrational and silly fear. I got a guitar, sat down on a quiet street in the old town and began to sing. Soon appeared the first passers-by. I tried to pretend play for himself. I remember as a sweat and was red as a lobster. However, there occurred an amazing thing.
