You could always try busking.

And Nick knows some Old Time tunes, too. I bet "President Lincoln's Hornpipe" would go over big there!

I did think of busking, but got bashful. Also too hot. Never did find any players. The folks at a local Irish bar gave me a blank stare when I asked.

Yes, there is a whole lot of stuff about Abraham Lincoln in Springfield. Everywhere you turn.
