The Violinist of Hillsborough Street Honors the ‘Big Four’

About four years ago I shared the story of David McKnight, the Violinist of Hillsborough Street. I ran into him again yesterday while getting lunch, and he was kind enough to play excerpts from the fight songs of the “Big Four” of the ACC: Duke, Carolina, Wake Forest, and NC State in honor of the tournament now underway.

David has been playing the violin on Hillsborough Street for about fifteen years.
