We will explore Dublin from a musical point of view, while learning about local musicians and famous street performers. You will discover the vibrant street music scene of Dublin together with me, a singer-songwriter and experienced busker (street performer), learning what it means to live life as a full-time street artist. We will visit and explore three important landmarks - Henry Street, Temple Bar and Grafton Street. You will learn about the importance of busking for the Irish culture and become acquainted with the stories of famous musicians, local buskers and music-themed movies that were shot here in Dublin ("Once", "The Commitments"). We will also meet wonderful artists. Most musicians performing on the streets of Dublin are friends of mine, so we will stop along the way to tell you a few words about them and their music. When we reach Grafton Street, which is the most important busking spot in Dublin (and one of the most famous ones in the world), we will stop to sing a couple of songs together, allowing you to experience street performing firsthand. In the end, after our little busking session, we'll wrap things up with a coffee/tea in a famous coffee place.
I am Runaway John, a Romanian-born singer-songwriter living in Ireland since 2013. I am a full-time musician and busker, known for entertaining people with my music on Grafton Street and in various venues across Dublin. I started my music journey back in 2012, when I decided to quit my job as a PR Consultant and follow my passion for this art. In 2015 I recorded and independently released my debut album called "Un-Settling", which consists of folk songs I wrote since I started living in Ireland. Join me and fall in love with Dublin's songs and stories.
