City seeking buskers

The City of Hamilton yesterday relaunched its street busker programme for the summer tourist season.

Events and project manager Danilee Trott said: “With the summer season approaching, this is a great time to reintroduce the City of Hamilton’s street buskers programme.

“We are relaunching this initiative in order to bring it to the attention of the many talented local artists who are interested in street performances.”

Any performer interested in taking part in the busker programme can fill out a form, available at City Hall and at the city’s website, and pay a $25 fee.

The permit will allow them to perform at Nellie’s Walk, Wesley Square, Dr EF Gordon Square, Waterfront Square and Queen Elizabeth Park. While they will not be able to directly solicit funds, they may put out a hat for tips.

“It is our hope that Hamilton, like many cities around the world, will have live performers playing music throughout the day, enhancing the city experience for residents, workers and visitors alike,” Ms Trott said.

“We are looking for singers, visual artists, musicians, and spoken word artists. We would even consider dancers for the City Buskers programme.”
