In The Black Bull, Frosterley

Duncan Davis photographed Geoffrey last weekend. Geoffrey played for customers in The Black Bull in Frosterley in Weardale. He included Lucien Lambert's "Le Niagara", Louis Moreau Gottschalk's "Marche des Gibaros" and Jelly Roll Morton's "Original Jelly Roll Blues" in his programme. Geoffrey got to know these pieces on a recent visit to New Orleans, Louisiana, U. S. A. Their composers were born in New Orleans.
