Subject: NATIONAL BUSKING DAY
From: GUEST,Furry
Date: 01 Oct 00 - 03:20 AM

I mentioned this idea on my horribly misunderstood thread bashing robert johnson ( The title was the problem I meant it to be provacative)I was encouraged by a pair of responses from dwditty (short for ditty wa ditty the old bbq bob song right?)and of all people Van Halen's bass player Micheal Anthony ( just kiddin mike, sorry I listened to VH when I was 13, I apolagize again if you acctually are VH's bass player)
Here's the idea NATIONAL BUSKING DAY the 1st sunny saturday in spring.EVERYONE TAKE TO THE STREETS WITH GUITARS, BANJOS, MANDOLINS, HARPS, and FIDDLES AND PLAY TRADITIONAL AND/OR ORIGINAL SONGS ( provided they don't sound like ozzy, britanny, or the sex pistols, I guess it will be Ok if mike plays JUMP!)
SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!

Tiple? Whose got the tiple? 'Spaw?

This is one of those things that could really blossom into something incredible. Imagine throngs of Mudcat-patch-wearing, Bill-Sales-buttoned folks in Oz, England, Wales, Nova Scotia, Scotland, Canada, Italy, Ireland, USA, Germany, South America, and wherever else we all hail from hitting the streets on the same day spreading the word of traditional music and the mudcat (Get those cards ready, Susan of DT). I think this is a great idea, Furry.

And, yes, you correctly identified the source of my nom de mudcat.

I should have called it INTERNATIONAL BUSKING DAY.
My fault, I hereby change the name of the new holiday to INTERNATIONAL BUSKING DAY.
Now all we need is some traditions (beside the music)like Christmas trees or Leaving a seat at the dinner table for Woody Guthrie or something like that.
Any suggestions?

A sprig of last year's rosemary(that's for remembrance) tied to the wristband or the collar of what the busker wears for aid in remembering tunes and words.

And we're gonna do this on the Spring Solstice, and dress in clothes from our past lives, right?. Little Hawk will call the aliens to make crop circles in all the parks,we'll all greet each other with secret handshakes, and the password will be----Brass Toilet Seats on Icebergs! (hey, you all know I'm not bashing, OK?) Ooops, almost forgot the Morris dancers, dressed all in green-o.

This sounds like a great idea. And we can congregate at the busker's dream spot; multi-plex movie theatres where all the films start at roughly the same time. You play your butt off for about 40 minutes, fill the case with donations, and take a break for an hour or so. Repeat as necessary.

The pie and mash shop was still there wqhen I was over a couple of months ago. I think the council require a permit for buskers these days.

We need a permit to play in the metro.I think you have to do a sort of"audition"first though with the RATP.
Thanks for the culinary info.

I love the idea of an international busking day. May day sounds good to me.
Maybe we can get our city councils to proclaim it as well.
