Vi Walker and her Singing Musical Saw

 Violet Walker, singing musical saw

With an extensive background in  vocal and instrumental music, it makes perfect sense that Violet would find and master a musical instrument that mimics a singing lyric soprano, a mezzo or even a full rich alto sound.  Over the last twenty five years she has also made a mark for herself as a children's entertainer, primarily as Pozey the Clown, and has been invited to thousands of birthday parties, fairs, festivals but now is mostly entertaining on the musical saw creating joyous and unique music with her cello bow and a common carpenter saw.  She has played solo with classical orchestras, rock and blues bands, though also loves being a street performer.
