Catching up with the Narwhal Empire in Nashville

Got a reasonable day off in Nashville. (You got to recover from jet-lag somewhere!)

Wound up at a cool blues bar on Bourbon Street. But the highlight was a busker. Her name was Heidi Keltner and she had a great sense of rhythm, a decent bluesy voice and could hold the crowd she had built up.

Its got to be a tough life trying to be a musician in Nashville. Heidi had to leave later to start a 3AM shift at UPS...

The street scene wound up as a jam with a drunk African American woman trying to do Aretha Franklin (whilst holding onto me for physical support and complaining I smelt like a white guy).

But lets stick to Heidi. Her original songs were fine.

Her YouTube channel is badly underproduced. But put on headphones and listen to this. You won't be disappointed. (The band is called the Narwhal Empire... but I only saw Heidi.)

I guess you mean Broadway, as Bourbon Street is in New Orleans
