I Publius: Get ready for a busker summer

The town of Great Barrington will be even more fun as we move into a busker summer, thanks to local resident Gene Carr. The streets will be alive with musicians recruited by Carr’s new program, Berkshire Busk! We’ll be seeing and hearing all kinds of music, ranging from bluegrass to classical. Each busker will earn $75, plus tips. The word is already out. Musicians will be assigned designated performance spaces and a lot of people will be gravitating toward the town. Obviously, some spaces will be more desirable than others and that could spell minor league trouble.
