All my busking was un-amplified back in the day. You need to choose your spot well and learn to properly project your voice.
Sensible use of a capo to keep you in the right zone was also a requirement. :)

In practice there doesn't seem to be any attempt to discourage amplification around here as long as it's not too loud.

Try telling that to some of the buskers I used to hear in London in the 70's. They were plenty loud enough to be heard from a distance.
