Cool Spring Downtown District Launches Busker Program
Performers of all genres encouraged to apply at sweetteashakespeare.com/buskers
Fayetteville, NC – Cool Spring Downtown District, in conjunction with Sweet Tea Shakespeare, recently launched a Busker Program for local artists and performers to share their talents with the broader community and bring the streets of the Cool Spring Downtown District to life with an expansive and eclectic array of sidewalk entertainment.
Ten dedicated busking spots have been activated throughout the Cool Spring Downtown District for performers registered and selected for the program by Sweet Tea Shakespeare. Performance schedules are Thursday through Saturday evenings from 6-10pm and Weekends from 11:30am-2pm.
The program will also serve as an opportunity to integrate busking culture into the Cool Spring Downtown District while celebrating the talent and innovation that exists within the local arts community.
“Sweet Tea Shakespeare is delighted to partner with Cool Spring Downtown District to pilot its Busker Program in downtown Fayetteville. We have live music built into our culture, and it’s a natural extension of what we do to help build this exciting new program,” said Jeremy Fiebig, Artistic Director. “We’re particularly interested in expanding what busking means to include a diverse range of artistic and creative endeavors, from artists painting on easels to carnival arts, from spoken word to chamber music, the Cool Spring Downtown District Busker Program wants to explore the rich tapestry of all that Fayetteville and the region have to offer.”
Performers are encouraged to apply for the Cool Spring Downtown District Buskers Program by submitting an application, which can be found at sweetteashakespeare.com/buskers/, for performance consideration.
