Helen Long, left, and Sydny Mason, both age 21 from Eugene, Oregon, play the accordion and the saw on day three of the Northwest Folklife Festival Sunday May 27, 2012. Busking - street performance for tips, is a tradition at the festival. Long and Mason have been playing together for a while, but haven't quite found a name for their musical duo, which plays an eclectic blend of klezmer, blues, and Russian songs. "Everything's minor key," said Long of their one consistent thread. "No major key for us."
