Simon Chadwick - Early Harp

When I was living in Oxford I always wanted one of those vintage bicycles to ride round the city in. I saw one offered for sale, for £5, as a restoration project, and I went to the man’s house to get it. He looked at me and asked, “are you an artist?”

I was born and grew up on the edge of the New Forest, and I loved being up on the heath, or at the beach. My mother taught me change-ringing on tower bells when I was just a boy. I went away to University and studied physics for one year before switching to archaeology. I spent many years drifting, travelling, making things, and reading, before turning to music.
