Welcome to the Bath Buskers Web Site

The name says it all:- it's a web site by buskers for buskers about busking and street entertainment in Bath, with contributions from many of Bath's local buskers. Please note that this is not the official website of Bath buskers - such a thing would be a contradiction in our view. It is a website by some buskers in Bath.

If you busk in Bath (or elsewhere) and would like to contribute to the site you are very welcome - you can email the site via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We try to be inclusive, although if you would prefer to remain enigmatic, as some people do, then that's fine. However, even if you're not a busker - perhaps a local resident or maybe a visitor to our city - we hope that you will find plenty in these pages to inform and entertain.

You'll find these pages packed full of useful info about busking, and the answers that you always wanted to know to the questions you never dared to ask, such as: how do I get a pitch? Is busking legal? Do I need a license to busk in Bath? Should I give money to buskers?

Hodmadoddery are Steve Henwood and Tony Carter (both vocals and guitar).

Hodmadoddery aren't buskers in Bath but we are Bath Buskers. We started in Bath but probably only play the streets here a couple of times a year nowadays, but we do carry the WestCountry busking banner into Europe every summer, when and where we've met loads of other great performers, some of whom we've been able to invite back to Bath. Years on the street festival trail in southern Europe - mostly nowadays in Italy - have given us a little string of summer street music festivals that we do, where we're welcomed back and in some places even get called "legendary". In any case the weather's better and the wine's cheaper.

Unlike most of the other regular performers we meet on the Euro circuit, we refuse to use amplification, it spoils our sound; we also pride ourselves in not playing the songs that everyone else does and everyone knows - people say "you sound like So'n'so and so'n'so" but we're not going to play those tunes just to make the cash registers ring. We play British folk music, some newer songs that fit with the tradition, some songs from other places (the States and the Celtic Fringes) that are happy in that company - and even a few of our own. We've got CDs for sale, mail us at hodmadoddery - at - moonson.co.uk. One of these days we'll do a website. We prefer just playing...
