Midday Musical Interludes on the U-Bahn

European metro stations and trains are always filled with accordion music. While sometimes it’s a solo musician, the family groups are my favorite. Here is one family I always see on my ride to work, often along the Berlin U-Bahn U1 line near Warschauer Str.

Every once in a while you have a guitarist or flute player, like the guy who plays midday at Kreuzberg’s Schelesisches Tor station.
