SUMMER SIDEWALK SPECIAL STARTS JUNE 22 

Hello Summer!  

The 2019 PK Dwyer Summer Sidewalk Special runs June 22 - September 2.  Here's how it all works:  Find Folk & Blues Busker Extraordinaire PK Dwyer at any Scheduled Music Event or Busking Performance and you can pick up Busker Do or any other available PK Dwyer Cd for just $5 bucks!

Busker Do is a twenty-one minute acoustic powerhouse featuring ten original blues, folk, and roots tunes written and performed by PK Dwyer.  The album was recorded in live single takes and sparely mixed at Garey Shelton Productions [Mercer Island, Washington].  The end result is a neat little concept album and an illuminating glimpse inside a Buskers Life and the mindset of PK Dwyer.  The album is not slick; it is raw and rollicking.  PK's harmonica honks, hoots and trills. and the flat picking and finger picking guitar work is very fine.  The recordings one song featuring slide guitar - Highway 99 - is an ode to the local road much traveled upon and a commentary on PK Dwyer's daily life.

Other available PK Dwyer Cd titles include: Rough Shod - Healed - Blues Guy Now and The Jitters!

$5 sale price is for in person physical Cd sales only.  Downloads are $7.  See the Works & Music page to listen and download.

The PK Dwyer Summer Sidewalk Special kicks off with his Saturday, June 22 performance at the Magnolia Farmers Market in Seattle, Washington @ 11:00 am  Location: 33rd Avenue W & West McGraw Street in the beautiful Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle Washington.  Be There!
