The Sherlock On Tour

Fans of A.C. Doyle's master sleuth Sherlock Holmes will appreciate this tidbit from the news:

Called the Sherlock, it was carved from the wood of a diseased tree from the garden of a cottage in Edinburgh where the writer spent part of his childhood...The instrument was made as a tribute to Conan Doyle's creation, Sherlock Holmes, who played the violin while solving cases.

Those unable to make on the concerts can still heard in a BBC Radio Scotland's Music Cafe broadcast.

Details here.
