Edward Everett Hale was an American author and historian from Boston; he is related to an amazing number of familiar names in U.S. history including Nathan Hale, the revolutionary era spy, as well as Helen Keller. This statue of him is in the Boston Garden.
Oh, you wanted to know about the other guy? That is Professor World Band and his Peace Wave Generator (see here). When we got there, he had already made the acquaintance of the little girl at left, Marguerite, and wove her name into the song. She seemed somewhat bemused by the whole thing.

Amazing capture of the street scene. It makes me smile.
Thanks for this short but very informative note. Good illustration, funny performance. TFS!

That is a combination of people (statue and professor) you would not expect to stumble across. The statue looks so serious, and gazes on the world with an air of statue, while below the crazy color of the Peace Wave Generator continues on. (what a name!) Great scene, such a contrast.
All the best

Hey, I know this guy... Nice shot including the Hale statue, which seems to be his favorite - that's where I've seen him a couple times over the past two years. Good to see he sticks it out in colder weather as well.

Real cool shot!! a multi purpose one-man-band displaying his talent and what a contrast behind him, as if the statue is also enjoying to the tune. What ever it is you are almost compelled to watch, I love the attention to detail, the light, tone and the peaceful surroundings. Lovely catch, congrats

Nice photo excellent arrangement with quite different, contrasting content. I'd say superb snapshot in excellent light. Well arranged in portrait format.
Very well done
Wish you a nice Sunday.
