O’Malley Plays Banjo On Annapolis Street

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley spent part of his Memorial Day strumming a banjo as a street musician in Annapolis.

Photos of the governor playing a six-string banjo emerged Monday on the Twitter account for the blog Eye on Annapolis.

O’Malley’s Twitter account later posted the photo along with the words “I love that as governor of MD I can still play street music in Annapolis.”

In the photo O’Malley is wearing a Baltimore Ravens T-shirt, cargo shorts and flip-flops. He seems to be accepting tips in his banjo case.

O’Malley, a Democrat, has for years been the frontman of a Celtic rock band, O’Malley’s March, where he sings and plays guitar, banjo and tin whistle. His band still plays several concerts a year.
