Wandering Minstral

A Wandering Minstral
A Wandering Minstrel

Another painting by the Scottish artist John Burr (1831-1893).  An itinerant fiddler plays for a family in a Scottish lane.  I can’t help but think the father looking out has a skeptical look; possibly wondering what this will cost in the end.  Music and storytelling were a very different commodity prior to recordings and the radio when it was all handmade and not a marketing tool.
