Alpine horn playing — in Birmingham! (by Fionacu).

Spotted in Hazelwell Park, Stirchley B30, Anton the alpine horn player — the only alphorn musician in Birmingham — practises his lonely traditional Swiss music in local parks. Here he is on a 3m long F-horn made from wood and rattan. The instrument was used to call in the animals in the Alps but this little practice session brought in cheers from schoolkids on the other side of the River Rea.
