Jim Hinde, 1951-2008: Market busker sang his heart out
For 18 years, Jim Hinde's folk songs provided a musical background for Pike Place Market's cacophony of fishmongers and vegetable sellers. His anti-war and protest ballads carrying more meaning and passion than ever as he watched sadly as a new generation went off to fight.
Hinde, the Market's bushy-bearded busker, died in his sleep Monday. He was 56.
Listen to Jim's 30 minute set during the 2008 Northwest Folklife Festival two weeks ago.
He performed during the The Pike Place Buskers' Showcase as well as organized the show.
