Video: What's It Like Busking On The South Bank?

Londonist recently caught up with street performer Charlotte Campbell, as she dropped the customary £6 float into her guitar case, and started entertaining the weekend South Bank crowds with her sanguine brand of guitar pop. We discussed the ups and the downs that come with busking, and how it's possible to make a living from it.

You can see Charlotte perform most days along the South Bank. You can find out more about her, and purchase her music on her website. And you can follow Charlotte on Twitter. She's a 21st century busker after all.

Ace video and love the song.

I found Charlotte's music last summer, I love her voice and music and it's been a pleasure to be a backer on Kickstarter of her latest album, soon to be released.

You can really find great musicians busking, it's just a matter of stop and listen. Good luck Charlotte
