The devil has all the best tunes, so they say, and the violin is his instrument of choice. In this programme we explore fiddling from the classical and folk traditions with devilishly difficult trills and tricks from the Italian masters of the Baroque, folk fiddling from the British Isles to the Appalachian mountains of the deep south of American and sultry impassioned tango from Argentina. En route we take in music from Percy Grainger and Aaron Copland inspired by the folk traditions of the UK and the USA.

City of London Sinfonia is the Orchestra that promises to surprise and move you. They involve people from all ages and backgrounds in life-enhancing music experiences to create an exciting and harmonious future together. Tonight they are joined by two of the best folk musicians in the country: award winning folk fiddler Henry Webster and the astonishing banjo player Dan Walsh.
