Copper Nellie and Bobby Bronze make a remarkable double act.

Copper Nellie is a rambunctious tease, even when she’s supposed to be still. If she appears to slightly raise an eyebrow, the likelihood is you didn’t imagine it.

Nellie loves her squeezebox…..

She looks rough around the edges but once she begins to play she is captivating. A musical statue playing a selection of folk tunes from all over Europe, Copper Nellie communicates through sound and movement making for very expressive dialogue.

Bobby Bronze

Don’t be fooled by the alarming teeth, inside, Bobby Bronze is an old romantic, leaning on the lamppost for a certain somebody to come by. Bobby performs a repertoire of music hall, wartime and timeless classics. Reasonable requests for music are welcome.

Copper Nellie and Bobby Bronze are also available individually.
