“With ‘Singing Bones’, The Devil’s Violin raises the art of storytelling to sublime heights. The virtuoso melodies on strings and accordion lay down an acoustic pathway for Daniel Morden’s deep old stories to travel along unimpeded, sweeping the audience in their wake. This is masterful, theatrical storytelling delivered with great feeling for the dramatic pause, the dark imagery evoking all shades of emotion from horror to joy, while the songs and stories continue to resonate deeply in the bones of the listener long afterwards.”
This is a studio recording of the second show by the internationally acclaimed Devil’s Violin Company.
Suitable for anyone over 11 years old.
