Made in the Great War - Sam Sweeney

Radio4 BBC Saturday Live 15 April 2017
Sam Sweeney talking about his fiddle
"Six years ago Sam Sweeney, fiddle player with Bellowhead, bought a violin in Oxford. It had all the appearance of a new instrument but the label inside gave the date 1915 and the name Richard S Howard. Sam discovered the violin had been made - but never finished - by a luthier and some-time music hall performer from Leeds called Richard Spencer Howard who died in battle during the First World War. The violin languished unfinished for many years until it was completed in 2007 and placed in the window of an Oxford music shop where it was spotted by Sam. Sam tells the extraordinary story of his fiddle in his show Made in the Great War which tours in June."

Sam Sweeney - great fiddler, totally wasted in Bellowhead. IMHO.
Beautiful playing and a great story.
