Boris Johnson looks for musical talent

Musicians in London could be able to enjoy a live showcase and time in the studio thanks to a new initiative.
Great deals on musical instruments

Aspiring guitar players and other musicians in London are being offered the chance to compete for a licence to busk on the tube.

Licences for busking on the London Underground network were first introduced seven years ago and about 240 people now have a licence to perform.

Another person could be set to join them after Mayor of London Boris Johnson called on the capital's most talented buskers to enter a new competition.

Prizes include a 12-month licence to busk on the London Underground network, as well as a live showcase, studio time and musical instruments.

Mr Johnson commented: "I'm searching for the finest act to join the myriad of talented musicians on the Underground."

He added that this is a "brilliant opportunity" for young guitar players and other musicians to gain live experience and get their songs heard.

This comes shortly after Mr Johnson confirmed that £250,000 is being invested in a scheme designed to get youngsters in London playing a musical instrument.
