Same with my dad. He plays the shakuhachi, a little known Japanese instrument constructed from bamboo. He's spent the better part of life dedicated to this ancient tradition. Every gig he's played he's given all the earnings to a charitable organization he ran in the east side of downtown (which by the way was his regular job). We gew up broke as hell, but alwas surrounded by like-minded musicians and respect. He never once promoted himself. It was all about the joy of interacting with his instrument and his audience.
