Search for buskers to light up streets of Cookstown on a Saturday


Cookstown’s famous market streets could soon be filled with the sounds of music every Saturday, with buskers.

The Hub who are behind the initiative say they are looking for three musicians to come forward.

“Ever walked up Cookstown street on a Saturday and feel like something is missing?” a Facebook post from The Hub read.

“Something that everyone can enjoy, that all age groups will appreciate, brings people together and doesn’t cost much. No,not Primark or Burger King (though that’d be great!) but .... MUSIC!

“The Hub in it’s endeavour to bring the community together has sorted it so that three singers/musicians/groups/performers can busk up the town on a Saturday. We fill out the paperwork, all you have to do is turn up, have a good time and reap the rewards.

“How does that sound? Like music to your ears? grin emoticon Contact us at the Hub if you’d like the gig - thanks!”
