The Music and
Welcome to Nick Crump's website.
He is frequently referred to as "following in the footsteps of Gerard Hoffnung", being a versatile musician with a flair for inventing unusual new instruments.
The first one to grab the attention of the unsuspecting public, was the boghorn. It is a musical instrument made from a brand new toilet bowl made by Armitage Shanks and tuned to Bb. There are also the the tuned downpipes which are played with padded bats, plus the 30 stringed bath harp made from a new Twyfords (donated) enamelled steel bath and the church serpent (made by Harding).
All these instruments and many more are used in Nick's shows.
His show has toured many schools, arts centres and village halls in his home county of Dorset and the neighbouring Devon, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Wiltshire.
