London Underground Buskers

When I first moved to London, I adored the tube and everything about it. The novelty fades after mornings and evenings crammed in like sardines next to sweaty bodies, crowds, strikes, fare increases, delays and line closures. There is one thing I still love about it though, and that is the buskers that play their tunes through many of the central stations. I took a photo of this one playing in Holborn. A lot of them have unique instruments and are very talented.

In last Saturday’s Listen to a Londoner interview, Mariano Ortiz recommended Latin American harp and clarinet maestros Diego Laverde and Cheveto Requena at Angel and Green Park stations.

Do you have a favourite London Underground busker?

  1. I dont’ like the saxophone player that is at…. Green Park? Victoria? I can’t remember which. But that’s just because I dislike saxophones.

  2. This is a great post, please check out my new website, we spoke to Diego Laverde recently. we’d love to hear from LU Busking fans. Dinita
