Hi Toads, Indiana that would be nice. No plans yet but maybe you have an idea. I might wait until Spring though : )

Q

Do you have a favorite subway station where you like to play?


Cathy Grier Blues+Grooves responded on 07/15/2011
A

one fav is Staten Island Ferry terminal. It's a fun mix of tourists taking a bargin ride in NY harbor (free) and commuters. The wait time between ferries can be 15 minutes to 1/2 hour so I have a wonderful and "captive" audience. I also like Grand Central Shuttle and 125th st.
Thanks for asking, C


Q

How do you keep your cool when it's really hot outside?


Cathy Grier Blues+Grooves responded on 06/14/2011
A

I drink lots of water, and try not to walk on the sunny side of the street. I also try and book gigs that aren't close to hot subway platforms. But once the city heats up that is almost an impossible task.

Q

Would you like it if dogs were allowed to ride on public transport?


Cathy Grier Blues+Grooves responded on 06/14/2011
A

you bet I'd like to see dogs on public transport. but I understand that it is a tricky question to answer because not every owner knows how to control their own dog, or pick up after them. Maybe make it during certain hours only.

Q

How do you keep smiling? It's infectious!

it's a pure reaction that I can't control. Glad it catches your attention. Better than a frown any day. Thanks for asking.

Q

last week when I was there, there was a guy playing a wooden instrument he held in his hands that looked like a pipe organ. he was just blowing across the wooden tubes but the sound was amazing.

The instrument you saw was a pan flute, gorgeous, from South America. here's a link to a great group Aqua Clara and fun clip http://www.nycsubwaygirl.com/artists-vid...

Q

When I'm in NYC, I find myself stopping to listen to people who are singing/playing music. Do most people stop or just walk on by? what's the largest group you've ever had while in the subway?


Cathy Grier Blues+Grooves responded on 04/26/2011
A

most people walk by, slower of course when they realize there's live music. Remembering for the most part people are on their way to places and don't have time to stop. The largest group I have is a few hundred in the SI ferry terminal and that's so much fun-my captive audience I call them! Other than that 20-40 people at most, but usually at any given time it's more like 2-10 who'll stay for a song or 2.
