Julian Bream at the BBC

Hi,

I had assumed that this would be referenced here already, but I've failed to find it, so here it is. If anyone is worth referencing twice, JB is!

As a luthiery bonus, spot the bowler at 34:11.

His private life is more or less completely hidden from the world. The video of A Life in the Country which I think was about 1978 when he was 40 something, suggests clearly that he lived then alone with help from a gardener and housekeeper. I have a distant recollection of something in the local press about a son of his but any such thing has rarely been in the public sphere - there may be more in the Palmer book.

It does seem a bit strange to be so secretive...not that I am a real gossip merchant, but the odd basic fact about an artist's life can give some insight into his/ her output and wider philosophy.

I also tended to get the impression that he travelled the world alone...which is quite a lonely life, really. I suppose he drove himself up and down the UK to concerts?

In a bumpy old MG (no wonder one of his Romanillos guitars got cracked) in fact I think he drove round Europe as well. Latterly he had a Morris Minor, seen in various videos, but last he was seen in a VW Polo locally.

Bream had a stepson, if I remember correctly from 'A Life on the Road'.
I think keeping one's private life private is admirable.

Love the cockney accent when he was really young. What a lad!
