Roger - Profile

This article is one of a series on regulars at the club.

Roger first attended the club around fifteen or twenty years ago but he recently returned after a long break.

His musical career began in 1942 when he joined the cub scout movement, singing around campfires. In Wales he was a member of a boys' choir and sang rugby songs on tour.

Roger's more recent musical background is amateur musical theatre and that's where he is happiest. He played with Avon Light opera in Salad Days, Oklahoma and White Horse Inn, which his wife, Christine, produced at the Redgrave Theatre. He tours with a "concert party", entertaining at retirement homes.

Roger is practicing the harmonica, piano, electronic keyboard. He likes to attend the Sidmouth Folk Festival.
