Busking. Nice to finally know the origions of where it comes from. I get asked quite often lately "where does the word busking come from??" with no answer to give. (My guess would have been English though) I have a lot of Yankee friends who've never heard of the word "busking". I tell them I am a busker and they squinch their eyebrows together in concentration.. . . busking??
It has been in my experience that more Canadians are familiar with the term Busking than Americans. I was going on the English influence in Canada for this answer. I'm curious to know what others think--Canadians and Americans alike.

Cheers
