A street musician of Brugge!

This very pleasant and talented fellow was seen on my hurried walk around the beautiful town of Brugge in Belgium. He is in fact playing a 'horned-violin' or 'the Stroh violin' (sometimes called a violinophone)' that is perhaps common to Brugges? It seems to be a 'simple' fiddle that is amplified by the horn but it certainly had a different kind of metallic effect on the sound. I hope too, that you enjoy this rather stylised scene that can take us back a few years perhaps. -
