Passenger became a Grafton Street busker today

After a headline show last night at Live at the Marquee Cork, singer songwriter Passenger announced on his Facebook and Twitter accounts that he would be busking on Grafton Street at “12ish” today.

True to his word Passenger arrived on Grafton Street at midday. He performed a mixture of covers and his own self-penned songs including his number 1 hit Let Her Go to which he invited the large crowd that had gathered to sing alone.

Passenger is now among the list of famous musicians to busk on Grafton Street, a list that includes Bono and Sinead O’ Connor.
