A HISTORY OF HORNED STRINGS.
The definitive history of the Stroviol and other resonator instruments by Melbourne based Alison Rabinovici.
This publication is a must for enthusiasts of resonator musical instruments from the early part of the 20th Century.
It features reproductions of photos, catalogues and details the development and commercial prodcution of these fascinating mechanically amplified instruments from the early days of sound recording.
Fiddlers Feast is a deliciously extravagant smorgasboard of Australian music. Described as "a powerhouse of Australian Celtic music that flies down bush tracks, over blue mountains and zips down the city highways"; "Fiddlers Feast tears through a typically bizarre and eclectic mix of jazz, folk, gypsy, country and rock"; "Rollicking fun, with plenty of fiddles, and a tight rhythm section playing with precision and power".
