Glyn Mason Profile

Perhaps it was destined that music would feature in Nottingham-born Glyn Mason’s life. His father was a former choirboy in Wales and his London-born mother was a honky-tonk piano player.

When Glyn was three they shifted to Australia, staying until 1958. That year they crossed the Tasman to New Zealand, moving around a few times before finally settling in Lower Hutt.
