Support your buskers!!

Support your buskers!!

Due to the current Covid crisis and lockdowns buskers are left with little to absolutely zero chance of working and earning money, and are also in a precarious position regarding any government help.

Many have turned to performing and/or raising money online to get them through this difficult period.

Keep Streets Live is endeavouring to support them by sharing links to live streams and crowdfunders, both here and on our new Facebook page Keep Streets Live Streams. We’d also like to extend our support to other buskers who face hardship in one way or another, whether that be ill health, theft or other circumstances.

Please email contact@keepstreetslive.com if you’d like to appear on our page or if you know of anybody who needs support in this way.
