Anybody check out the winners of the busking competition this year? I only got there in time to hear their Riders in the Sky which was pretty awesome I thought.

Hussy Hicks, very deserving win. Out of 40 odd contestants, they were the only girls. Hope they inspire some more to have a crack.

I thought it was a busking competition.

Should professional musicians be able to enter this competition ?

Maybe there needs to be 2 categories so the real buskers get a chance.

Just because you Busk, does not mean you are not professional !

Couldn't agree more- for years I used to see the X-Man busking and I reckon he should be banned...

We saw Juzzi Smith busking in Byrons main street and he was awesome!. And concerned about the human traffic, so he got people to come in close around him
so people could get past. There was a huge crowd. He was selling a cd, so does that make him a professional? Cheers.

Juzzie is the Confucius of modern day busking. Awesome entertainer. Pro or no Pro, blah blah blah! Hope it does for Hussy, what it has done for Marshall and Churchill.
