Busking Roots

Whether on Church Street, in front of Marks & Spencer or at De Koffie Pot ‘Buskers Bandstand’, you will find a busker in Hereford City Centre most days of the week. It has become a popular destination for buskers, both local and from other counties.

Two acts you will find around the city are Toby Parker (Parker & The Suitcase)  and Freeborn Rising.  Toby Parker is known for his Bob Dillon covers and his original one man band sound, as well as having a smile on his face rain or shine.

Freeborn Rising’s folk punk tunes tell tales of the times and are akin to The Levellers. What they both have in common is that they take busking seriously and are loyal to their busking roots. Stay Real! Support your local buskers, they add a vibrance to our stroll around the city centre.

Over 23 years experience being a self proclaimed Shecentric. Careers in fashion, makeup, as the proprietor of my own retail businesses, and at times, just about making ends meet have given me a discerning eye and open mind when it comes to beauty, fashion and culture. Now residing in Hereford I would like to share the city from a consumer perspective...understanding the demands and economics of the average consumer from a realistic perspective while maintaining a passion for all things current and exciting around the City of Hereford. It has become a new and exciting arena for entrepreneurs with big dreams.
