    They are in fact not homeless. They are a traveling musicians traveling from town to town trying to raise money for a documentary called Free Dirt. Check them out: http://www.youtube.com/user/UNCLEMOMMY

    The fact that someone is homeless or not has nothing to do with the fact that they are or aren’t a good musician. People in Nashville are mean. The city has more of a homeless population per capita than NYC… people are fed up and mean. They pass judgements on people. Sometimes the only thing people can see is homeless… Why not just say “spoon player”? WTF? I am one of only 4 professional spoon players in the US. I play grass roots festivals, folk fests, play in venues, get paid for studio time, running a film project, hop trains around the country, people have done documentaries on me. But, all of this, the first thing that was uploaded was homeless. People are people, if they have a roof or not. Please don’t forget that. Also, although I don’t mind, It is also customary to ask permission and to TIP if you’re going to sit with a video camera on a street performer. It’s rude not to.
