There’s a guy banging on a guitar and singing. He’s got a P.A. and he’s way too loud. I go through the alleyway, past the restaurants. I could set up here: there are a few… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 413

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 413 Sunday July 21st Winchester (Opposite Oxfam, Time: 2:49-5:12pm). That short-haired, French (I think) accented lady in her mid-sixties (I reckon) who I see around, gives me a £10 note – amazing!

Diary Of A Busker Day 318

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 318 Friday January 25th Winchester High Street (opposite Vodafone, Time: 12:57-1:25pm). A freezing day, despite the melting snow everywhere. The trouble is the wind, which makes it seem twice as cold. In fact I couldn’t take more than half an hour – my fingers, especially on my left hand, were in so much pain pretty much… Read more →

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 304 Friday November 9th Winchester High Street (1. opposite Bellis, Time: 1:05-2:22pm, 2. opposite Vodafone, Time: 2:38-3:12pm). About an hour in, I’m pretty much warmed up so I make an attempt on Requerdos De La Alhambra…which goes OK, I think, considering this damn hand problem I’ve got. At the end, I wonder where Ian is… Read more →
