Sam Sweeney The Unfinished Violin Album, NCEM
📅 Monday 6 May 2019
NCEM, St Margarets Church, Walmgate, York, YO1 9TL
Sam Sweeney - The Unfinished Violin, Violin music inspired by a truly incredible story…as seen on BBC Breakfast & Antiques Roadshow.
Inspired by his violin, carved but never finished by Richard Howard in 1915, Sam Sweeney has created a live show and album of instrumental music inspired by the Great War
Following Sam’s appearance on Radio Four, to talk about Made In The Great War. Island Records subsequently invited Sam to create an album of the kind of music Richard Howard’s violin would have played had it been assembled at the time of its making. “I said, give me a few days to think about it, because I really didn’t want to create a jingoistic, patriotic album,” he says, “but after some research, it was very clear that there would be loads of great tunes, and great stories.” He is very much looking forward to sharing these on the tour..
