Thursday July 29
The Flowerman presents The Mustang and the Minstrel
Let me introduce ourselves
JD Ludlow, otherwise known far and wide as the Flowerman, moved to theComox Valley two years ago this August 2021. My passion is spreading joy and happiness wherever I go in a very unique way. My latest shenanigan involves bringing live music back to the valley as a pop up travelling musical show. So proud to say I received a government grant for this one! Who knew?
Dimo Tchakarov is the pianist. He immigrated here from Bulgaria and now happily calls the Comox Valley home. Dimo and his BC born partner have thrown themselves into this community. Dimo played for years on a variety of Cruise Ships entertaining people in his own unique style. He met is long time love while playing on a cruise 10 years ago. They met on his birthday. He tells me all the time that she was his birthday gift!
The old wooden piano – the highlight, aside from my piano playing genius Dimo Tchakarov. I recieved this stand up piano from one of our group members. We asked local artist Brian Scott to add his artistic flair to the piano and could not be happier with the results.
The piano will be towed behind Lemon-aid starting Thursday, July 29 to a variety of locations throughout our beautiful valley.
I encourage you to stop by and listen to my friend Dimo rattle the piano keys and sing along to his very entertaining style of play.
Hope to see you all soon!
May 5th, 2021
People see me wearing my Hawaiian Lei throughout the Comox valley everyday. They always ask me “How can I get Lei’d?” The answer is simple. Come see me at Goose spit park on Sunday, May 2nd from noon till 5:00pm with $20 cash and I will drape a Lei around your neck (Covid safety procedures in place)
All you have to do is agree to perform a random act of kindness to a stranger on May 5th. Please post any stories and pictures (with consent from the recipient of your act of kindness) of your good deeds on my facebook group and I will award one official flowerman t-shirt to the person who had the most creative act of kindness and had the most impact.
