This episode is sponsored by Ithaca Strings. www.ithacastring.com/ Ithaca Strings IS Eric Aceto, a luthier, violinist and producer of the ISI dual pickup system. This system is by far the best and most honest sounding violin pickup system on the market right now! It blends an Electret microphone with a bridge pickup, both attaching to a stereo jack out under the chin rest. This means you get the solid sound of the pick up blended with the sweeter sound of the Electret mic without heavy...

Ola Kvernberg is a Norweigan violinist. If you like gypsy jazz, you may know him from the album 'Angelo is back in town' with Angelo Debarre.

www.christiaanvanhemert.com/ Christiaan is the violinist for the Rosenberg Trio, he is based in Holland and he is an amazing player!

Christiaan has really found a way to emulate the way Stephane played when he was playing with Django, but has done this whilst still keeping his own unique sound and style. Christiaan is also a keen teacher, he has many intructional...
