Busking
« on: May 23, 2009, 08:56:43 AM »
This morning I took part in the Wymondham busking day.  A local town runs it every year as part of its music festival.  Essentially they encourage lots of buskers to come and play in various spots around the town on a saturday morning.

There were maybe 20 people playing, from a mad lady with  tambourine, through to some fairly sophisticated guitarists, trumpets, and even african drummers.

I thought it was going to be terrifying, but I settled in very quickly and really enjoyed myself.  Little or no nerves (perhaps because Ive been practising hard for a few weeks especially).  Friendly people, made a little money (about 12 quid for what its worth).

Was a good experience- and will be looking for an excuse to do it again 8)

Fortunately theres only about 30 seconds of footage, interspersed with Mrs Slim talking to the nipper, telling him that daddy is busking adn that he's playing Come on in my Kitchen!

Its not quite as cringeworthy to watch back as I feared  ;)

Well that fact that she even knows the title of the tune is huge step forward in itself, I truss you had them suitably adorned in threadbare peasants clothing to add to the over all busking effect  ;)
