King Of The Buskers
King Of The Buskers Some are solo acts, wowing the crowds with slight-of-hand tricks, close-up magic, or sword-swallowing; others work as a team, dazzling the audience with gravity-defying stunts or musical performances. But the buskers of Key West, Florida all have one thing in common: a determination to stand out from the pack and to pad their pockets at all costs. Is there room in this unique tribe for a newcomer?
A part-time street performer from Pennsylvania is about to find out. 'King of the Buskers' follows his journey as he seeks out the advice and friendship of one of the world's most renowned buskers. It's a weekend that could change both men forever.
