Bear the Tinker

Lee here :) Zee arranged a visit to Andrea Cumpson's farm where Bear the Tinker was visiting. He travels and lives in a caravan pulled by his horse Callum. He is a musician, singer, storyteller and folklorist. It was an incredible day and especially nice when he was just standing around chatting about things. You could talk with him for hours and be entertained the entire time.
Sitting in the shade on a really hot day!
Bear coundn't find his guitar pick so Thuy lent him one. It was a Tinkerbell pick....Bear is a Tinker and told stories of Faeries...I thought that was hilarious! I wonder if she got it back.... I like to think of him keeping it and using it when he plays his guitar next time. The songs he sang all told stories...accompanied by instruments like the fiddle, a celtic drum called the bodhran, a bag pipe I had never seen before since you don't blow into it, and whistles. It was a great afternoon!
