Biography

I have always been a francophile, but I fell in love with the street organ when I was visiting Paris and saw a man playing one there in a street market. Everyone around was enjoying the music, some singing, some dancing and some just listening. So I bought an organ from the Odin family, makers of fine traditional street organs in rural France, and now I take my 'Orgue de Barbarie' to fairs and markets, parties and celebrations. My daughter Fiona and granddaughter Rosy, chanteuses exceptionnelles, often join me and sing beautiful lyrics along with the happy sound of the organ. And yes, I have a (toy) monkey.
