The sunshine of Italy has produced the finest of violins down the centuries. The sea air of Orkney is doing the same today. Hear and see at first hand what is involved, from the tools and the skills, to the unique personality of the finished instrument.
Orkney violin maker Colin Tulloch, with his son Findlay, describes the process, and violinist Charlotte Rowan explores the sound with examples from her musical repertoire.
You can read more about Colin’s work in a feature on the Orkney.com website, from which these photos are taken.
