Bedubya busking (49) RE: busking 17 Apr 01


Glad to hear busking is cool in Indianapolis. I know it's widely practiced, if not well-paid, down the highway in Bloomington. What is a mystery to me, though, is why it's not allowed in the wonderful little Mecca of Nashville, Indiana. When I was there a few years ago I thought it would be a great place for street playing. So, I checked with the Chamber of Commerce and was told that it is not allowed. Odd thing is that my Hoosier wife remembers seeing Crystal Gayle (Loretta Lynn's sister), who was a music major at IU busking in Nashville back around 1970. So, it must have been okay once, but not any longer. It's odd that Nashville encourages those who make their living via the visual arts, but denies the performing artist. Or maybe it's just that the country acts in the clubs don't want the competition.

Cheers,

Bruce
