Categories: Music / songs, Tourism / Traditions

Countries: Australia, USA

Composer and pianist, collector and arranger of folk music. Born Brighton, Melbourne, Australia. In London 1901 – 14. Very close relationship with his mother, some thought too close. Financed a Percy Grainger museum and donated to it his sado-masochism paraphernalia including the photos he took after each session. Made his own clothes from towels. Clearly not worried by conventions, any bio-pic is going to be good fun and the 1999 film ‘Passion’, set during his time in London, doesn’t disappoint. Died White Plains, New York, U.S.A.
