The Unfinished Violin
Playing a historic fiddle of World War I vintage, Sweeney’s debut solo album comprises 16 pieces to mark the centenary of the end of that terrible conflict, ranging from Scottish pipe tunes to popular dances and marches of the day. He’s joined by other instrumentalists, including his trio Leveret. But it’s Sweeney’s unearthly fiddle playing that commands attention. A Top of the World in #142.
