Cornwall ON – So it’s been a week since Buskerville hit town. By all means it was a wonderful success and kudos to Carilyne and Chad. I was sitting on the patio at Schnitzels, having a bevvy with one of the buskers who also happens to be a City Councilor; Mark MacDonald and we were chatting about Buskerville and Busking in general and the threads of conversation all led back to a simple thought.
Why not having Buskers in Cornwall every Saturday? Why not have Buskers in front of businesses that wanted them up and down Pitt Street, or Montreal Road?
We looked at the pros and cons. We looked at what some other cities were doing and how on a Thursday night the only real sounds of life on Pitt was the live music being played on the full patio.
“The city needs to help support and create energy, and I need more locations to play my Concertina..” waxed Mr. MacDonald.
What do you think Cornwall? Would you like to have artists of all types Busking in Cornwall? You can post your comments below.
