Hosted on Bloomsday

Hello everyone,

Tad Marks is a fiddle champion from the Washington DC area. He has played with many popular bluegrass outfits such as The Del McCoury Band , Lynn Morris Band, James King Band, and Big Hillbilly Bluegrass. This cut is from his recent disc Callin' In the Dogs.

Do a web search on Stephen Nachmanovitch and you are likely to find more on his written work than his violin playing. In the past year he has released two concurrent albums of new music for electric violin. This track is from one of these discs, Ludi Fecundus.

Boldwood, presented here for their second time, once again graces us with their neo-Renaissance style. This is the lead track from their disc Feet, Don't Fail Me Now.

Closing things off is Sophie Serafino, an australian violinist making her third appearance on this show. This tune is a Bowed Radio Exclusive, put together while wrking on her new album.

Support for this episode of Bowed Radio is provided by violinist David Strother, featuring his latest recording The Desert is Singing - available at CD Baby,, and other online retailers.

Thanks everyone!
