Buskers Of Leeds

If you have ever had the chance to walk down Briggate or nearly anywhere in the city centre, you will have heard the wonderful sounds of buskers. Most of the buskers are amazing and they will make you wonder why they have not been signed up to a major record deal or at least selling out First Direct Arena. But for whatever reason they are in the city centre providing their music to us for free.


Walk On By..

I have sometimes stood listening to buskers play for hours which means I have noticed so many people who just walk right on by. I understand we are all busy and always rushing to get somewhere or to someone. bUt you can’t spend just one minute to listen to some free quality music? I will never understand why people will pay hundreds of pounds to support a millionaire, but won’t put a fiver into a hat/bucket or guitar case for a busker. dO PEOPLE NOT REALISE IT WILL HELP THE PERSON AND NOT PAY A COMPANY EXEC FOR HIS 14TH CAR. sO NEXT TIME YOU SEE A BUSKER, DROP A FEW QUID INTO THE CASE, IT WILL MAKE THEIR DAY.

dID i MENTION THAT ITS FREE ENTERTAINMENT? YOU COULD STAND(OR SIT) FOR HOURS AND NOT PAY A PENNY. TELL ME WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME BEYONCE DID THAT FOR YOU? DON’T WORRY I WILL WAIT WHILE YOU THINK OF A TIME..EXACTLY YOU CAN’T. Some of the buskers i have seen will stand in all types of weathers playing songs. i remember one guy that was busking at 11pm on a saturday night in november…11pm on a saturday in winter! that is crazy to me. i guess what i am trying to get across is the passion the buskers of leeds have for music. also not just music, i saw one guy reading poems outside of trinity. but the passion was the same. rain, snow, wind, cold, hot, THE BUSKERS OF LEEDS ARE OUT.
