Busking has always been either 'just for fun' or to 'earn a few bob' on the street doing what you like doing best - playing music.
But in Australia's regional areas, busking has become something to aspire to for local musicians - young & old - especially with the prizes and national exposure being offered.
We were lucky enough to be invited to the very first Regional Busking Championships held in Gundagai NSW in October 2018.
Gundy has a special place in history we'll look at soon.
Meantime this short 'mini-doco' looks at the event and how it all started.
