I am Jon Hodkin. I am an English cyclist and a tuba player. Back in 2000, I hatched the idea of a cycle touring musical show, and InnerTuba was born. I have pedalled my shows thousands of miles, performing them to audiences throughout England, Northern Ireland and Scotland. InnerTuba is now to make its international debut, with a tour in the USA.
In July and August I will be touring and performing extensively throughout Iowa, with excursions into neighbouring states. All my performances will be offered free, but I will be promoting the work of, and taking donations for Blank Children's Hospital, Des Moines, Iowa. All proceeds along my journey will benefit the hospital's Child Life Music and Arts Therapy programme.
The tour is made possible thanks to generous support from many - especially Iowa's own cycle retailer Connecticut Yankee Pedaller -www.cypbikes.com and UK based trike makers, ICETrikes. - www.icetrikes.co.
In turn, thank you for giving generously to support the valuable work of Child Life.
