Like Seasick Steve, but a lady version!!

Went busking in my local Market town, St Ives on Monday and ended up live on local radio, who were in town asking people about the guided bus which opened recently (They also recorded a bit to play later)
Shorty after this I was told I had to move by the "street ranger" Apparently you can't busk in the market area on Market day without permission. Shame as it was a great spot and I got a really good reaction for the sort time I was there.
I have emailed the council to try and find out how to get permission...so far it's been a bit like banging my head against a brick wall : -/

A "Street Ranger"?  Do they wear smokey the bear hats, riding boots and ride a horse?  The way you overcome the bureaucracy is by becoming the friendly squeaky wheel.  Fine someone on the council and ask for their help, and when they send you to someone else and it doesn't work go back to them every time.  After a while, I promise they will get you a answer just to get rid of you -- just make sure that you always keep it friendly and polite.

As Petrolian says, a bit patronising, but publicity none the less. At least you got a chance to be heard on radio, which is more than most of us will do (good thing in my case). Furthering the cause in Cambridge. Well done.
