The Buskers



Hey Bloggers, and I have been reading and hearing about buskers and the best of the buskers lately. Maybe it's because those friends I know of play underground as part of that Music Under New York Program, or maybe it could be because a lot of those busker websites such as The Saw Lady or that blog that seems to devote itself to all busking all the time Undercover New York or maybe even because The Naked Cowboy, another one of those buskers, is running for Mayor. And for those of you who happen to be wondering what busking even is, that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia says it has something to do with the practice of performing in public places for tips and gratuities. People engaging in this practice are called buskers or street performers, and also that the word busking derives its name from the Spanish root word buscar, meaning "to seek, to look at". And Wikipedia has this list of famous buskers such as Joan Baez, Edith Piaf, Roni Benise, The Blue Man Group, Pierce Brosnan, Jimmy Buffett, George Burns, Cirque du Soleil, Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Stephane Grappelli, Woody Guthrie, Bob Hope, Jewel, Steve Martin, Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Page, Penn and Teller, Gerry Rafferty, Simon and Garfunkel, Pete Seger, Rod Stewart, Joe Strummer, Stomp, and Robin Williams. And in addition to that Wikipedia list there seems to be many busking bands and performers to be found in that city of New York and beyond that go by the names of Dagmar, Theo Eastwind, Natalia Paruz, Susan Cagle, The Jazz Collective, Yaz Band, Thoth, Quintet Tarantino, The Collins Huggins Show, The Xylopholks, those horns under ground, The Positive Brothers, Tin Pan Blues Band, Yogi Laser and the list is long and beyond. And so I thought to post a photo of one of those busking bands in New York City above. Have a great busking day.
