Wild Strings Quartet
The Wild Strings was concieved as a double quartet of three guitars and acoustic bass, violin, viola and two cellos. Playing in a more pastoral vein the music touches on European Classical, Flamenco and North African cultures. Recorded in Bath in 2001 and mixed at Andersonshelta in Bristol 2002, this is a mainly live studio recording with added overdubs.
