Who are the Buskers?

Having met at the Horse and Groom pub in Castleside at the pub's Open Mic night (which inspired the duo's name), The Buskers formed in January 2009 in order to play a gig for a mutual friend. The pair are competent musicians and are focused on ensuring audiences have a great time, with many people being astounded at the size of the sound generated from two musicians.

Having clocked up several pub gigs over the years, the pair now perform mainly at weddings and private functions. Audience reactions suggest there hasn't been a single bad gig to date. Check them out an you'll see why.
