Giving trees a voice.
What could be more fitting for the monthly theme of “Craft” than hearing from a self-taught violin maker and player: Introducing Steve Burnett, Maker of the critically acclaimed Sherlock, Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon violins. Steve’s role as an environmentalist,sculptor of wood and sound is to make violins ,to give Trees( The lungs of the Earth) An important voice for our fragile Environment ,in turn helping promote Harmony,Respect and Peace . The most recent violin made and launched on this World Ocean’s Day 8/6/18 through the National Media is the “ IL Mare Driftwood Violin”, made by Steve from a Driftwood log he found on an East Lothian beach two years ago and endorsed by The Marine Conservation Society as A voice from, and for the sea!
Steve will be joined by his musician/composer friend and fellow environmentalist colleague ,Thoren Ferguson ,to also talk about their collaboration in recent projects for Peace and Ocean protection with two unique violin’s which Thoren will play.
