A well-known busker and father who frequently played in Norwich has died aged 35.
Jonny Walker’s friends said he was known as a popular UK busker, a street culture activist and song-writing troubadour.
His family posted on his Facebook page yesterday: “It is with great sorrow but immense thankfulness for a passionately lived life, that after three days in the Critical Care Unit at Leeds General Infirmary, Jonny died peacefully, at 11.13am today, surrounded by family.
“During the coming days, his family ask that you allow them time to grieve.
“Details of opportunities to celebrate and remember Jonny’s life will follow in due time.”
The family later posted directions to the Leeds Survivor-Led Crisis Service Freephone and The Samaritans.
Mr Walker was known for his Keep Streets Live campaign to keep buskers in city centres, and was often seen playing guitar at Norwich Haymarket.
