Dagmar Duo in Grand Central
A little (very little) bit of free exposure to some musicians that I saw on Saturday in Grand Central. Its the Dagmar Duo. Just a man and woman set of singers.
But, I’m a sucker for a female singer who wears fairy wings. The rest of her getup was also a bit eclectic and retro; but the wings won me over.
I was only there for part of a song as I had places to go. They were good; but then again most performers in the subway system are quite good.
One of the primary reasons I put them in a post is that I seem to see fewer and fewer performers. They are all approved by the subway system, but I seem to just see a smaller number of them. In Times Square, their primary spot has been taken over by a little music kiosk so they can’t perform there. In Grand Central, the usual performance area just inside the subway entrance seems empty almost every time I go in there.
My observation isn’t systemic, though. I walk to work and I only use the subway over the weekends.
