I've never really played on the streets, except for one attempt in college when I chickened out and set up in an out of the way spot (didn't make any money).
Just a few bungled endings when leading songs at bluegrass jams. Thankfully nothing more embarrassing than that...so far.
My primary guitar is an Epiphone Hummingbird. I also have a Yamaha FG-365 guitar. My mandolin is a Loar LM-700 F style. My fiddle is a Fiddlerman Soloist. I have four penny whistles: a Clarke Sweetone high D, a Feadog high D, a Clarke C and a Dixon composite tunable D.
“You made my heart sing.”
“Thanks for playing my song.”
