Anyone going downtown over the last few months must have seen the flute player that has taken up residence there. Anyone know this guys story? Would be interested to know more about this chap.

He seems to be getting a regular following, I gave him some loose change the other day and noticed he had a good amount of coin there. Another interesting fella to add to the list of Sault personalities.

My hubby's office is right by where he plays, and hubby says he only knows one tune. Drives him up the wall day after day. LOL

I have seen some guy with a flute on the corner or Queen St in front of Bank of Montreal for a few weeks now. He is usually there from about 10 am until about 7 or 8 pm.

I've seen him a couple of times, first time he was tooting away near the old Moorse Audio, so I gave em a toonie.. last time I saw him, he wasn't playing the flute though, I think he was attempting to sing. He was near RMH.. NCO.. what ever it's called these days.

When I have seen him on my way to work, I always thought he was playing one of those plastic recorder like my son has. I caught his "tune" for the first time on Friday going by on the bus. All I can say is he should keep practicing, whatever it is he is playing.

I keep telling Keebler every time we see him that he could totally be a hobbit from Lord of the Rings. He has that hobbit look to him. He really should be putting some sunscreen on, because his skin is getting pretty badly beaten up.

And, that tune he plays gets in your head and is HARD to forget! I end up humming it for a while after hearing it.

he lives a couple doors down from me. he plays his 'flute' all day and all night although he has a recorder and a harmonica too. he doesn't make a lot of sense and i don't think he knows any actual songs.
