My name is Cheryl and I am a busker. I have been playing music on the streets for over 5 years. I travel between Budapest and Vienna, but you can often find me in my hometown of Bratislava at the weekends. I also spend a lot of time in London, as I love to visit my sister there when she is working as a tour guide.

I started this blog to share my experiences of playing music on the street with other musicians and people who like to listen to music.

I hope this blog provides useful information for both groups!

Buskers who play for money in a public place, such as the streets, are also called street performers or street musicians. Other buskers are entertainers who perform in public places for gratuities. Busking is practiced all over the world by men, women and children and dates back to antiquity.

Today, many buskers are street performers (busking) in order to make a living. They may perform comedy, magic, mime, juggling or other acts to entertain an audience. Some buskers also sell their CD’s or DVD’s on the street to make a profit. Some buskers walk around the audience while they perform, often involving them in some way. Others set up on a certain spot and draw a crowd that gathers around them, similar to how stand-up comedians work.

Busking is common among some Romani people, who are called “gypsies”, a description that is no longer socially acceptable in some societies. Romantic mention of Romani music, dancers and fortune tellers are found in all forms of song poetry, prose and lore. The Roma brought the word busking to England by way of their travels along the Mediterranean coast to Spain and the Atlantic Ocean and then up north to England, great Britain and Wales

I’ve been watching street performers for over 10 years, and have been playing in the streets myself for nearly as long. I know my way around the busking scene and feel that I can tell who has the best act on any given day. If you want to see a real show, check out my recommendations.
