Vocals and Trumpet
Ray Johns is the leader of this great bunch of musos. He is also the Baker in the 'Redhill Baker'. Ray has been making artisan bread for many years now, first at Redhill and now at Balnarring. He loves his bread, his wife, his daughters, his grand-children, his boat, his wine and his trumpet. The order is up for debate.
