Black Balled

Recommended Posts

You don't know what black balled is until you've ridden a unicycle.

I used to be able to ride a unicycle (it's somewhere in my garage).


And I can almost play the concertina (and it's a Maccann).


So, . . . if can get the two together I might claim be in a set of one on this planet . . . .


. . . unless there are any other claiments?




I would be the other claimant. I ride long distance and cross country unicycle, and play concertina, melodeon and harmonica, although not all at once.


Like you, Mike, I also ride a unicycle and play the concertina, melodeon and harmonica, although not all at once but I have managed to ride and juggle 3 balls at the same time. I walk on stilts as well. A few years ago, I came across a group called The Stiltoneers at a summer festival in Gunnersbury park, near Ealing. There were 5 of them, all wearing 3ft high stilts. They stood in line, each wearing a different coloured costume and each one played a different musical instrument, though none played the concertina, from memory. Maybe we could start an exclusive club for unicycling concertinists?
