In 1969, Emmet Chapman invented one of the rarest and most difficult instruments in the world… The Chapman Stick.
The 12 string monstrosity requires a very specific, skilled musician to make it sing. But street musician Mark White was up for the challenge.
Mark White is among a small minority who have ever even heard of his instrument, but his skills are second to none. With only 10,000 Chapman Sticks worldwide, they are one of the most seldom seen and rarely heard instruments in existence.
Last summer on the streets of Edinburgh, Mark was recorded playing an incredibly technical piece that will blow you away.
