The famous street performer Abby Roach joined another artist Chris Rodrigues to perform a magical duet out on her porch.


The video uploaded to Facebook by Roach, who is also known as The Spoon Lady, sees her playing the percussions with two spoons while her friend Rodrigues plays guitar and sings an energetic number.

The duo put up the performance as a part of last year’s “Play Music on the Porch Day,” an open event that invites any musician to play music on their porch and upload the video on Facebook using the hashtag “PlayMusicOnThePorch.”

During the performance, while Rodrigues rocked with his choice of a more traditional instrument, Roach surprised with her excellent use of the unconventional musical instrument, a spoon.
