Description

This tradition for several years running has given center stage at the Gazebo over to young talent, seasoned (some may even say road-weary) talent, as well as the fortunate few who make music for a living. Representing the latter we have Joe West drifting down from Santa Fe and the Handsome Family making a rare hometown appearance.

Once again in true Busker tradition Historic Old Town has invited the best of local street artist to come and draw on the sidewalks, this time in the Museum's sculpture courtyard. Come and watch as the drawings are created on Saturday and then displayed from 3 to 5 p.m. that night and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
