My Film of wigan self taught artist and eccentric
Started by: jagman64 (316)   Report abuse
My film of Kevin Duffy outsider artist musician and landscape gardener, I bet not many people know of his place in ashton but its free to the public and he is always adding to the place with new buildings and sculptures

What a load of codswallop! He's not a 'Wigan' self taught artist at all! He's from Ashton and his place is in Garswood, in St.Helens!

We went to see Kevin a couple of years back and I thought I'd put this snippet on Youtube but I hadn't so here it is.

Kevin and his Mandolin

A left handed banjo player. There's not many of them about!
Bennie, It looks and sounds to me like a bouzouki very similar to a mandolin even tuned the same as one. Then again it could well be a mandolin
