Donald Lee Ravey - 22 July 1929 - 22 August 2014

I enjoy listening to nearly all kinds of music, and I play most keyboard instruments, beginning with piano when I was 7 years old, and continuing with electronic organs (occasionally Theatre pipe organs, when I get the chance!), electronic keyboards and, most recently, an english concertina.
