Ouse Valley Branch: 'Busking Beyond Borders' by David Fisher

Loading Events

David has headlined at folk clubs around the country. As a director of the buskers’ advocacy group ‘Keep Streets Live’ since 2019, he has actively campaigned for the rights of street entertainers up and down the country. He has spent a number of years busking his way around nearly 50 countries. His adventures include run–ins with the police in Azerbaijan, free tickets to see Bruce Springsteen and many more. Alongside regaling the audience with his anecdotes David will be playing some of the songs that he wrote on this journey and bringing the audience up to date with his latest busking travels.

Booking forms are available on request from Interim Chair, Ellen Punter, and must be returned at least seven days prior to the event:

Tickets for lunch are priced at £25 for members and £28 for non-members. Talk only tickets are £10.

These meetings are open to local branch members and their guests, as well as other members of the ESU. Ouse Valley branch welcomes new members and embraces those who have supported the ESU, as well as the local branch, for many years.
