Sam Bradley & local musicians go Busking for Change in Vancouver streets




Friday, local musicians took to Vancouver streets to busk in support of war affected children. War Child’s Busking for Change event was brought to the west coast for the first time. My friends and I first heard of the event when Sam Bradley tweeted he will be one of the artists participating in the great cause. His original goal was to raise $400 for War Child. That was quickly surpassed by caring and giving people bringing Sam’s total to over $2100 (and still growing!).

Vancouver rock band, Elias, forefronted the event with a stellar line-up of talented musicians busking the streets including:

Carly Rae Jepsen
Said The Whale
The Painted Birds
The Februarys
Yukon Blonde
We Are The City
Jessie Farrell
The Zolas
Current Swell
JP from Maurice
Winston Hauschild
Chad Brownlee
Adaline
Benjamin Keith
Morgan Cameron Ross from Birds Of Wales
Joseph Blood from Bend Sinsiter
Goodbye Beatdown
The Racoons
Henry & The Nightcrawlers
Sweetheart
The Autumn Portrait






Despite the cold and dreary Vancouver weather, the artists played host to a handful of small crowds and smiling passersby from 10:00am to 6:00pm. My friends and I caught some of the bands, but we mostly supported Sam Bradley (and his sister Grace Lindsey) throughout the event.
