Berkshire Busk brought joy to downtown Great Barrington

What struck me most was the impeccable timing of the Busk.
To the editor:
Kudos to Eugene Carr, all the buskers and all their supporters. We witnessed Berkshire Busk last night and the carnival atmosphere it brought to GB’s town center. Musicians were plentiful, talented and diverse; breath-taking acrobatics stole the attention of even the most distractible; fun showed up in many forms. What struck me most was the impeccable timing of the Busk — considering the week of recent storms and torrential rains that kept us inside and that arrived as a postscript to a long, virus-subdued existence. Last night, what we saw all around and felt from the inside out was a new infectious phenomenon — sheer joy.
