Boyd Tinsley of Dave Matthews Band, Back to Busking on the Streets

EXCLUSIVE

Boyd Tinsley knows the value of simply playing music for human ears ... which is why he busked his way back to the streets for a free pop-up show in NYC.

We got Dave Matthews Band's violinist Wednesday playing with his new band, Crystal Garden, at Washington Square Park, and he told us how playing a free show takes him back to the days when he had to do it.
