People often say...don't play with matches or you may get burnt. That advice doesn't apply to Brant Matthews, ailias, Brant the Fireguy. For the last 15 years he has made his living working and entertaining with fire. Key Records spoke with the Street Entertainer and learned that he attended Theatre School in Montreal, Canada. Since then he has performed around the world in countries like China, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, England, Ireland, United States and Canada. During his shows he tells his audience that if you can learn to do one thing really well, you can learn to do anything.
Held every year in the Nation's Capital, the BuskerFest festival presents street entertainers from around the world on Ottawa's Sparks Street Mall. The Sparks Street Mall does not pay the Buskers for appearing so the Buskers who perform depend on the audiences they attract to make their living. If you enjoyed watching these videos of the Fireguy...feel free to show your appreciation by sending him a financial donation. Without our support, Buskers of this level will dissappear forever.
