Do you tip street performers?  Maybe it depends on the instrument or the level of talent.  I understand, I would like to pay some of them to stop playing.

The fellow pictured above, I'm sure you saw at the farmer's market this year.  He's great, I gave him a couple of bucks.  We have lots of great local musicians here, we are lucky.

Street performance or Busking....Did you know busking is another name for it?  I had no idea until I started to write this article.  It's practiced all over the world by different people.  Buckers take great pride in what they do, many make a good living doing it.

Alright, so do you tip them?  Is it a real gig?
