Bath's Buskers...

On any given weekend, you can be sure that there will be buskers on the streets of Bath. This guy is seemingly a permanent fixture...he is there, every day of the week, rain hail or shine, singing his (VERY) familiar Bob Marley songs..or at least, his version....

There are nearly always instrumentalists - currently we are enjoying the beautiful voice of a young girl who sings opera arias....sometimes jugglers, sometimes flamethrowers....

This is one of my favourites - haven't seen him for a while - maybe he will be back when the weather warms up...must be chilly standing still for so can see how good he is....even the pigeons are convinced....

On Saturday, I spotted this guy...haven't seen him before but I was impressed...he played a mean fiddle which I would love to be able to do but whilst walking on a tightrope??

The Bob Marley gets a bit wearisome after a while but all these brave souls make shopping on a Saturday much more interesting....wishing you all a colourful week filled with interesting characters......s


  1. Great photos Susie...Bath looks like the place to be!

  3. you're pretty funny sneaking a statue in
    on us!

    beautiful in the open air.
