Pat Cooksey What compels a musician to busk? (70* d) RE: What compels a musician to busk? 20 Aug 04

Before I moved to live in Germany I spent many happy years in Ireland,both busking and playing in pubs, the busking part paid the bills, and the pubs were for fun financially.
I was fortunate to live in Ireland, where a good voice is paramount, and the people could identify with what I was singing.
My main towns in those days were Kilenny, Clonmel, Wexford, and later when I moved to Clare, the streets of Ennis.
I won the Tipperary song contest with a song about busking in Ennis, it was also a bonus that the people knew I had written some famous songs.
I sing now in Germany in places I would not have dreamed of in those days, but still look back with happiness to my time in the streets.
