busk•er, n. \‘bəs-kər\ one who plays music or otherwise performs for voluntary donations in the street or in subways. ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from obsolete French busquer ‘seek,’ from Italian buscare or Spanish buscar, of Germanic origin. Originally of nautical use in the sense of ‘cruise about’ or ‘tack,’ the term later meant ‘go around selling,’ hence ‘go around performing’ (mid 19th cent.).
