TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 382 Sunday June 2nd Winchester High Street (1. The Butter Cross, Time: 1:02-1:32pm, 1:58-2:50pm, 3:16-4pm, 4:25-5:10pm). A landmark day, in that, for the first time, I actually set up in front of one of the most – if not THE most – famous Winchester landmarks – the actual Butter Cross, in actual fact – just… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 381

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 381 Saturday June 1st Winchester High Street (Opposite Vodafone, Time: 2:40-3:47pm). Two happy coincidences occur: during Albatross, a man walks by, contributes and says ‘That was released on my birthday’. Then, just after I start James Bond, a girl wearing a black T-shirt with 007 in big letters walks by. No contribution there, though, so… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 380

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 380 Friday May 31st Romsey Market, Time: 10:40-12:10pm Back to Romsey – my mission being two-fold: 1. to say hello to Bertie – and get him to pose for another photo, as, by mistake, I deleted the one I took on my birthday, and 2. to play for 1 1/2 hours. Doll drove me this… Read more →

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 379 Thursday May 30th Winchester High Street (1. Opposite Oxfam, Time: 4:27-5:13pm, 2. Opposite Vodafone, Time: 5:25-6:08pm).

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 378 Wednesday May 29th Winchester High Street (1. Opposite Bellis/O2, Time: 2:10-3:45pm, 2. Opposite Vodafone, Time: 4:32-5pm). Very annoying – I woke up with a headache – something I don’t usually get. The sky’s very grey – threatening rain, as they say, so I set up under shelter. Just after I start, Madelaine – the… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 377

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 377 Monday May 27th Winchester High Street (1. Corner of Monsoon, Time: 2:05-2:30pm, 2. Opposite Oxfam, Time: 2:36-5pm). The spot opposite Vodafone is free but I thought I’d try the one just around the corner, where Woody was yesterday…however, after only 25 minutes, I’d had enough – not of money, though – I’ve accumulated the… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 376

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 376 Sunday May 26th Winchester High Street (1. Opposite Oxfam, Time: 2:25-3:58pm, 2. Opposite Bellis, Time: 4:08-5:10pm). Another day of fine weather – I reckon 60 degrees Fahrenheit is the perfect temperature for fingerstyle playing. Song Of The Day – definitely Yellow Bird, as it secured a £5 note – from a lady, and even… Read more →
