What's a busker?

The threat of rain postponed this year's Busker Festival but we are good to go now on Mother's Day, May 13th.  It's a new lineup of buskers, i.e. street musicians who perform for tips. (But we DO pay them!)  They play regularly in the French Quarter and in the clubs on Frenchmen Street.  We bring them to the north shore every year for what is our favorite event.

Here's a link to the lineup.
