A solo show performed in 2018
Linsey Pollak is “Carrot Man”. He didn’t want to be “Carrot Man” but the name sort of stuck (that’s what happens when a video with you drilling out a carrot and turning it into a clarinet goes viral). He tried to ignore the name, he even stopped making carrot clarinets for a while, but now he’s decided to embrace it, because after all, the Carrot Clarinet is the perfect example of his philosophy that “music is all around us and we are all musicians”. Linsey makes music by live-looping instruments of his own invention, such as “Mr Curly” (a contra-bass clarinet made from garden hose) which, sounding like a 70’s synth, will have audiences bopping in their seats.
