The  Pecker Dunne

Pictured below is the legendary Irish Tinker and singer songwriter The Pecker Dunne. Next to him is 'The little Pecker' a wooden puppet that he commissioned me to make for him for use during his performances. This is a foot operated  rod puppet which allows the performer to  simultaneously play an instrument. I was very sad to hear that Pecker Dunne passed away, he helped me a lot when I was his neighbour in Ireland and I never got chance to thank him properly.
