Violin by Mennesson (1877)

I am sorry to say that my very good friend Brian Myers passed away in May.  He loved his fiddle and was a regular visitor to Dunkeld for my fiddle weeks and for the Niel Gow Festival.

Brian's wife Kit has very generously donated his favourite violin to be sold in support of the Niel Gow memorial fund.  It is a fine 19th century French instrument (details below),

valued at ~£3,500

THIS FIDDLE HAS NOW BEEN SOLD (AND THE NIEL GOW MEMORIAL FUND TAKES A BIG LEAP FORWARD!)
