Thread Name: violin from Shackleton's floorboards
Subject: RE: violin from Shackleton's floorboards
Inspiring stories, both of Antarctic exploration and of the provenance of the violin.
Steve Burnett, who made the violin, just happens to be our piano tuner! He has also created other violins in honour of Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (viola and cello as well), Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen.
