What is a Busker? It is an English word that means a street musician, usually found along the Tourist Trail and anything resembling a commuter train. Many of them have talent, some do not, but the rarely stay long. A top class busker will play a whole song or two and then ask for some money. They are polite in Rome and don’t mind if you don’t give them money. When they are talented and entertain it seems customary to give them some small change. When they are bad, some advice should be administered by the crowd.
