School holiday programme buskers are heard…

by The Rock Academy on November 14, 2019

Microphone helps singers busk.

Adding the portable P.A and microphone to the busking during our school holiday programmes has been a fantastic revelation. It’s more comfortable for the singers and they don’t have to strain their voices. The guitarists and keyboardists find it easier to follow the songs too. Overall the music sounds a lot more connected and the good people of Kilbirnie get sweeter music while they go about their day¬†
