Read the posts at the top of this form. There are seven pages describing and discussing "busking"
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

G'day Ihave

You may need to get out more often - Smile. Folowing is a typical dictionary definition that I googled.

busk (bŭsk)
intr.v. busked, busk·ing, busks
To play music or perform entertainment in a public place, usually while soliciting money.
[Earlier, to be an itinerant performer, probably from busk, to go about seeking, cruise as a pirate, perhaps from obsolete French busquer, to prowl, from Italian buscare, to prowl, or Spanish buscar, to seek, from Old Spanish boscar.]

BTW do you do this type of performance but use a different name????

No, but I have seen a super musician doing it. Interesting.

Did you ever see the movie "Suicide Kings"? There is a scene were there is a guy washing cars windows and begging money at stop lights. The joke is that he has a BUSKET and a squeegy.
Just my two cents

Troppobob has got the definition covered. But I want to answer in a less academic way and in more in a spiritual heart and solo way.

Busking is what you want it to be. There is no right or wrong. However there is a energy and vibe you need to understand when busking. And the performer grasp on that is the important thing. There are ppeole out there with little or basic skill in the discipline they perform yet there busk skill is hi so they do way better then a grand master with no or little busk skill.

The following video is me at a arts festival but the crowd dint not know I was going to be there or did they plane to watch me. I normally do this on the streets. So sit back and watch me doing what I do and getting away with it.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

I always thought of busking as not seeking fame and fortune as some have defined it - rather seeking people...and lots of them.
