Ex-Bellowhead mainstay Sam Sweeney’s The Unfinished Violin follows his acclaimed live show Made in the Great War, centred on a fiddle originally crafted by a Yorkshire music-hall performer, who died in World War I. Playing this same instrument, Sweeney is joined by Rob Harbron (concertina), Josh Rutter (guitar) and Ben Nicholls (bass) interweaving wartime song melodies, marches, laments and dance tunes. “By turns elegiac, stirring and redemptive” (FRUK)

Drawing on an upbringing steeped in progressive politics, Nashville-based singer-songwriter and fiddler/banjo player Rachel Baiman – half of celebrated duo 10 String Symphony - brings contemporary folk virtuosity and compelling eloquence to the art of the protest song.
