Buskers 2015 judges
So much talent at this year’s Busker auditions!

Last week, our annual busker auditions took place at TransLink’s head office in New Westminster and it was a day full of extremely talented musicians!

Musicians have been part of the transit culture in Metro Vancouver since 1986.

The music really helps to create welcoming public spaces for riders on the system and surrounding communities.

There were nearly 50 musicians vying for one of available licenses to busk at SkyTrain stations.

They performed for a panel of three judges  who were treated to a variety of performances!

From instrumental classical violinists to pop-cover accordionists, everyone had something a little different to bring to the stage.

Thanks to all the musicians that came out to perform!
