SOP Podcast #70 - John Boody on Pushing the Boundaries of Historically Oriented Organ Building
In 1970, he apprenticed with Fritz Noack again and then with John Brombaugh in Germantown, Ohio from 1971 to 1977. In 1977, John Brombaugh moved his shop to Eugene, Oregon and John Boody and George Taylor founded Taylor & Boody Organbuilders. He moved to Staunton in 1979 where he lives with his wife, Janet. Aside from organbuilding, he enjoys cross country skiing, biking, gardening, and singing with the choir at Trinity Episcopal Church in Staunton. John and Janet have two children and three grandchildren.
In this conversation John and I talk about his long career in the field of historically inspired organ building.
