Here is an impromptu performance of Steve “Spoon Man” Tankersley, playing the spoons outside the Salem Public Library, in Washington County, Indiana. I shot it with a little point and shoot camera and was surprised at how well it picked up the sound of the spoons. Steve learned to play from his father, but he and his kids have taken spoon playing to a whole new level. From fiddle tunes to ZZ Top, he is a virtuoso of the spoons. on July 4th 2011 in Pekin, Indiana, Steve is organizing a bid for the Guinness World Record for the largest spoon ensemble. I will keep you informed about the details. Enjoy!
