Norman Fordyce was a jazzer in 1930s and 40s Fraserburgh,
listening to the likes of Joe Venuti, and of course Stephane
Grapelli, for inspiration. He was, however, a master of many
styles, in addition to composing music and poetry of his own.
His immense knowledge of music, instruments and musicianship
was worn lightly and with charm.
