The Classic Buskers Biography (Wikipedia)
The Cambridge Buskers were a duo of British musicians, whose career began in the late 1970s and were subsequently called The Classic Buskers. They performed classical music humorously using many instruments, costumes and props.
Michael Copley and David Adam Gillespie (Dag) Ingram met when they were students at Cambridge University. According to the liner notes of their first recording, their musical association began when they found themselves at the Blackfriars station without enough money for the fare to get home. In an attempt to raise the money from passers-by, they played The Entertainer and Eine kleine Nachtmusik for a while, until they were asked to leave by a London Transport official.
Subsequently, they gained international success with their performances and many recordings, and performed in over 20 countries and in 15 languages until September 2016, when they disbanded after an incident in Shanghai. It is reported that at one point a Japanese comic strip was written about them.
