George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver (1861/1864 – 1943)1

An American botanist and inventor who sang, played the piano, accordion, and mouth harp.

George shared his adoptive father’s love of music and later learned to play accordion and piano.

Michael Burgan from George Washington Carver: Scientist, Inventor, and Teacher 2

He was active in the Welsh Eclectic Society, a jovial debating club…  The meetings were carried on in a mock courtroom style […and…] sometimes he sang or played an instrument […and…] gave standup comedy presentations, such as a satire of a concert pianist wrecking a piano.
