Alan has been playing guitar professionally since he was 12 years old. Raised in a musical household with a father that had worked with people including Django Reinhardt, Groucho Marx, Julian Bream and Ginger Baker and with a sister who became principal piccolo for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Alan Plummer was the first classical guitar player admitted into the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Despite their best efforts, Alan ended up age 17 sharing a stage with bands including The Saints and Radio Birdman.
