#52Ancestors Week 13: Music

#Sticklepath #SticklepathOne #OnePlaceStudy

Amy Johnson Crow’s #52Ancestors aims to help us write something about an ancestor each week, with topic suggestions. My metronome timing has slipped somewhat, too busy with other projects! Music played a huge part in Charles Roger Finch Bowden’s life. Roger was a tenor soloist. When he realised his children were learning violin, clarinet and viola he took the hint and started to learn to play ‘cello to complete the quartet. We even gave a family concert in Sticklepath Methodist Chapel with wife Ann doing short readings and poems to keep everyone entertained. Perhaps 1978?
