- The Yorkshire Musical Saw Player
Charles Hindmarsh, stage name The Yorkshire Musical Saw Player, is an English musical performer who specialises in the playing of the musical saw.
A native of the North Yorkshire town of Harrogate, Charles Hindmarsh studied violin at college, but gained local notability with his party-trick performances on the musical saw. As audience appreciation of his skill on the instrument became ever more apparent, he began making professional appearances at old-time musical hall events, charity concerts and sessions as a soloist and/or with accompaniment from either piano or brass band. As well as taking part in the "BBC music live" festival he has also played in a skip outside Belfast City Hall for a "Catalyst Arts" Festival, in a folk festival at Broadstairs and as part of the International Gilbert and Sullivan festival in Buxton. Although he works in Information technology for Harrogate Borough Council, he has continued to play the musical saw throughout the UK and is now actively involved in promoting the playing of the saw through workshops and public concerts as well as providing advice to saw makers and composers.
