The stories behind Melbourne’s buskers, and what it takes to busk on the city streets.
Broadcast: 5x 6-7min episodes, YouTube and Facebook
Musicians and artists who perform on the streets are commonly called ‘buskers’, and they come from all ranges of disciplines and backgrounds. When you pass a busker on the street, do you ever wonder, ‘who are you’ and ‘how did you get here’? In this series we hear the stories behind some of Melbourne’s buskers, and find out just what it takes to busk on the city streets.
Please support these buskers and buy their music, their artwork, drop some money into their hat, and clap and cheer loudly on the street.
