Who's Gonna Throw That Minstrel Boy A Coin?

chuck deely ripWe had been planning a new activity on the website for some weeks. As part of our Video of the Day series we thought of posting a busker-version each saturday (the day you go into town to go shopping or drink a beer and therefore the most likely possibility to meet a busker).

The day we had it all worked out and the code was written the newspapers told us that a true icon of The Hague; Chuck Deely, had passed away the evening before. To get an idea of who he was and what he meant for the city of The Hague, please do a Google query.

We will dedicate this column to Chuck (and every other busker, wherever they play). If you meet one today, please give him (or her!) your spare change. Please do! Most of them are very happy with a few coins. A little more might give you a chance to request a favorite. If you do, please film it and upload to YouTube or Vimeo. Don't forget to send us a link!

Last week's choices

Every day we will upload a new link to a noteworthy video of a Dylan cover. These are the video's of last week. If you have suggestions, please mail.
