Barton buskers back internet sensation

They’re the buskers whose smooth sounds turned an 87-year-old dancer into an overnight online sensation.

WEB-Still-from-videoBarton Peveril music students Cally Jones and Jake Baker-Menage were busking in Winchester High Street when their Frank Sinatra cover got the spritely pensioner’s toes tapping.

The feel-good moment was shared on social media and retired delivery driver Ronald Burgess is now enjoying unprecedented interest in his impromptu pavement performances from locals, tourists and the media.

“Ron’s a Winchester legend,” said Cally, who has been playing sax on the city’s streets for three years.

Jake agreed: “He’s such a lovely chap, always up for a chat. It’s a great story!”
