Backyard Busk is a grassroots eclectic event that hosts musicians, authors, poets, comedians and artists of all kinds. All performers remain a secret until the night of the event. Entry is free, but we suggest making a donation if you plan on attending via the widget further down on this page.  All donations go directly to Education Through Music: Los Angeles. With each Backyard Busk event, we aim to provide at least one student with a year’s worth of music classes. Come with an open mind and leave with a full heart.


Education Through Music-Los Angeles partners with inner-city schools with the mission to provide and promote music in disadvantaged schools as a part of the core curriculum for every child to enhance students’ academic achievement, creativity and overall development. We believe that students should never have to look far to seek out any sort of art class.
