License to Busk.

Do these people require a license for busking. Shopping areas seem to be getting congested with them.

you need a license to busk in west dunbartonshire and you are restricted to certain areas.

I think once they licence it it kinda takes the edge off what they are doing .... I think the police powers should only be invoked if yir sh!t....

Starting with that old bastard with the stool and squeezebox in Buchanan Street.

Hi Cybers, passed him a few times during the week, he is pretty duff right enough, I have not even taken his photo I am certainly not going to pay for it

I missed two girls yesterday, Buchanan st, really good singers, more like opera singers, they were great, I had no change so I thought I would get them on my way back, damn they had gone, so no shot of them for my collection
I forgot the rules, take the shot when you have the chance

I widn'a worry too much about street 'beggars' and 'buskers', the difference between them, I fail to see.....
As we near the 'Common Wealth of the Few' games, no doubt any local street people will have been either cleared away by 'jobsworth' polis, or beaten-up by our Euro Beggars, who will be over here to beg, steal and drop-their-drawers for spare change.....
Mind you, and the good spots in the City Centre will be highly prized by our coloured friends from abroad, who will continue their trades here, and also claim benefits....
A good time will be had by all.....?

Nobody is allowed to busk in East Kilbride. Not that I ever go there.

Got to agree there .... It sometimes feel like assault when your wandering around town and someones trying to disable your hearing with the tinny amplifier cranked up to 11.... Though there is a busker in Edinburgh who uses an amp to accent the accoustic he plays ...not loud just there. He canny play worth a fcuk though    
norrie

There is an older guy in Glasgow, who uses and amp with his acoustic guitar but he is good

buskers is on alba at ten tonight.i never miss it but it does really annoy me that most of the buskers on it are production line music students who are in bands,have an agent or a recording deal and mostly do not need the dosh for which they busk.i have busked only once in my life and it was because i seriously needed the funds not because i was on some ego trip.

In Madrid "buskers" are required to udergo an audition before a panel of 3 judges before they can perform.If successful they will receive a licence valid for one year. Sounds like a good idea.
