Bikes Beans and Bordeaux Central Florida Song Circle

On March 29th, I wandered into Bikes Beans and Bordeaux (3022 Corrine Drive Orlando, FL 32803) for a sandwich after sketching at an East End Market wine mixer. Unknown to me there was a monthly song circle going on. Most musicians had guitars and they went round robin performing original songs. One musician performed on percussion, and there was a harmonica, but mostly several guitarists would join in as the performer sang. I had met one guitarist at a monthly guitar song circle that is held at the Winter Park Public Library. He remembered me and introduced himself.

The Central Florida Song Circle is Central Florida's oldest continuous song circle where musicians get together with guitars, violins, bass, fiddles and so on, playing and singing everything from homemade music to OPMs (other people's music). Besides that, the food was good and there was art on the walls form a local artist who creates personalized bike gear, covering helmets and shoes with bold line work. Drawings done on location were of Paris, France. I was pleased to discover another artist who draws on location.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld@gmail.com
