Thanks for the link. This is a new instrument to me, although I've seen some like it. And I find it interesting that you also call people by two first names. In the southern part of the U.S. there are a lot of Joe Bob's, or Carrie Jean's, or Billie Jo's. :)

@Lowell: In this case is "Walter" the surname. It is the 37th most common surname in Germany... (font: Wikipedia)

Great photos of this talented man! Am glad to see the umbrella shielding him from the sun's rays.

I went to the link you put above to hear what the music sounds like. Very enjoyable.

I would like to be a tourist there and listen his music.

JK. I took the link. This is really complex and very special player. Very nice.

I think that is the first time I've seen an instrument like this.

Klaus Walter und die Geigenzitter. Ich glaube er ist einer der letzten Musiker, der dieses Instrument noch spielt
