With OVER 1200 Facebook SHARES, 1400 LIKES and 160 comments, Cllr Darren Fower’s video upload, “Forget X-Factor – Watch this BUSKER in Peterborough City Centre” has proven to be a BIG hit with FACEBOOKERS in Peterborough and AROUND the world!
Commenting, Darren said:
“We often hear about sports people getting recognised, but I believe that the role of artist is equally important in regards the impact they have on local communities and society as a whole. Another good example is that of my friend Tony Nero, who works tirelessly and without any financial backing from the authorities, to promote art in Peterborough, these guys deserve recognition.
“As for this Busker chap, who I have since learnt is called Ben, I just think he deserves at the very least to have as many people as possible listen to his skills on the guitar and ability to write songs, and as mentioned given the amounts of money that the City Council spends on z-list celebrities, I’d personally prefer to see them promoting local people.
“What would be REALLY great now is if we could get some coverage in the local media and see if we cannot get him elevated up the music ladder,you never know, we might even get him a contract and if he makes loads of money he can spend it in Peterborough and help the local economy!”
