Starting with the year 2011, Carlo Klemm has taken on a new role with Capt. Red Entertainment Services....that of organ grinder.
The Deleika NT26/44 I is a brand new acquisition reminiscent of olden Germany, when organ grinders plied their trade on the cobblestones streets. Well, they still do that today, as they do in Holland, Belgium, Denmark and Great Britain. Now the street organ or barrel organ is in Alberta, and could probably be the only one in the province. In fact, there are probably less than a dozen street organs across Canada.
Look for Capt. Red and the street organ at fairs, heritage festivals, Oktoberfests, Canada Day, cultural events, trade shows, farmers markets and more.
As demand increases, Capt. Red will dress according to function in either German/Austrian apparel, or as Capt. Red or ....well, we'll see.
