This is Part 2 of a 3-part story featuring 69 year old Lindsay Field.

 

 

 

In this weeks program we learn of Lindsay’s experiences in a boarding school – an experience he really wanted, but in the end it didn’t quite turn out in the way he expected.

It was there that he experienced his first attack of Bell’s palsy, an infliction that would recur again during his life, but as we will learn, that first attack was very scary for a young boy.

One of the great things that happened at boarding school was his introduction to music. This would have a profound and lasting influence on him and helped shape a lifelong career.

Gifted with a beautiful singing voice, it would eventually lead Lindsay to gaining a lead role in the rock musical of the 1970’s – Hair.

His vocal and music playing career is one that continues through until today, with Lindsay providing backing vocals for John Farnham on his many tours.

Lindsay also appears in various music venues around Melbourne in the trio, Field, See & Mason.

This really is a fascinating adventure we take as Lindsay shares the journey through music, and, self-discovery.
