Do you know the origins of the ‘one-man band’? I didn’t either. It turns out there isn’t much history to this phenomenon. Wikipedia only cites vague accounts of the one-man band appearing in Western Europe as early as the 13th century.
I saw this once before years ago during a trip to Italy, however I didn’t shoot a great video as the guy was walking down a crowded street. This time I caught an act on the Charles Bridge, one of the top attractions in Prague and arguably the most beautiful bridge in Europe. The backdrop of great views made the music that much better.
