About Andre Cholmondeley

Hello! THANK YOU for visiting my Patreon page......

We are entering a new phase of artist/creative person relationship with others. It’s kind-of, sort-of a 21st century version of how the griots were fed, how the medicine women and men were supported in the village, and how the powdered wig composers in 17th century Europe got paid for writing down “screech away on the violin THIS way” instructions. And I looove violins, lol !!

Thanks so much for checking in.

I appreciate that you are considering becoming a patron of this artist, me.

30 years of touring.....has ceased. For how long no one knows....But I'm making lemonade out of lemons, focusing on music creation, teaching, workshops, demos and sharing a crazy prog-rock and fusion touring history.

I'm also including a new way to share and help others with the OTHER part of my life --natural foods, organic foods, including plant-based/veg lifestyle. I spent nearly two decades in natural/organic retail......it's a part of my daily life and I still have a lot to offer to help people optimize their health goals....so there's a tier just for that.

Hopefully one of the Patron levels works for you, and you can be part of the various experiences I'll share here !

Cheers...and thanks so much for your support and interest
