Who’s Ed Alleyne-Johnson
If you look down and right a little, you’ll see a box titled ‘What I’m Listening To’ and in it is the image of Ed Alleyne-Johnson’s latest CD, or at least it was when I bought it earlier this year. More than a few people have looked blank when I mention his name and his music so to enlighten you – a taster.
Ed is a street musician with a difference. I love his music. I first came across him years ago, probably before his time touring with New Model Army, but he and his music had slipped out of my mind over the years. I was lucky enough to hear him again when we were in Chester earlier this year and it brought the memories flooding back. He plays a mixture of covers and his own compositions on the purple electric violin and I love it. You’ll find him on the streets of Chester, York or some other town…
There are loads of videos on You Tube – varying quality – but you’ll get a taste of his music – enjoy
