Oscar Woods

Oscar Woods was an East Anglian melodeon player from Benhall Green, near Saxmundham, Suffolk. He was inspired to play melodeon after hearing an old farm worker ‘Tiger’ Smith playing. The two later became playing partners, where Oscar also learned from other players, notably the Seaman family of Darsham.
