Busker Needed on Dec 7 morning in Hamilton by Taylor on Nov 4, 2014
Hi
We are looking for a busker to entertain at our Corporate Children's Christmas Party on December 7 at Dofasco Park.

Our party is from 9:00am - 1:00pm
Depending on the price, we would like someone for 2 hours.

Ideally someone to walk around to juggle and do magic tricks. If you can do this on a unicycle, even better.

I can be contacted at ttaylor@hpa.on.ca or at (905)574-6044 x105

Thanks
Tracy Taylor

A repertoire of songs ended up in a street-corner string band with frontman Ketch Secor leading the way. From a Dylan snippet, the song "Wagon Wheel" attracted the attention of Coldplay and an album was to follow.

Bob Dylan was to lend another lyrical scrap to their next noticable song "Sweet Amarillo" which enabled "the Crows" to officially join the Nashville scene in the hallowed Grand Ole Opry. They also received accolades from the Americana Music Awards as "Trailblazers".

The album "Remedy" topped the iTunes Country Albums chart with an old-time string band template. With "Remedy", the Old Crow Medicine Show has established...

New angle on installation art busking by BC on Sep 1, 2014
:surprised2: (PRAGUE) Two installation artists have demonstrated a new technique for the ancient display of levitation. Here, we find the forces of physics re-worked in street-performing and busking.

For centuries, Indian yogis have claimed to have mastered the powers of levitation. In reality, they've simply managed to tap into fundamental design principles and basic physics. The optical illusion results in a stunning presentation of levitation.

A few weeks ago, Michael Shermer, founder of Skeptic Magazine and the Skeptics Society, posted a photo on his Twitter account resulting in this world-wide revelation of clever busking feats.

While the installation art of the single guru floating has already been seen, we now have not one but two gurus on display without the need for any installation....

Covering 40 cities in 10 months, the plan was to visit a new city every...
