Here We Go Again

WOW! What a fun interview. I have got to say that it was truly a blast to shoot this one! As soon as I walked into the Wood Violin workshop and saw Bridgid sporting a Whitesnake t-shirt, and a spiked belt with a Viper axe under her arm, I knew this was going to be a trip.

In this Sound Post exclusive interview, “Go-To-Girl” of Wood Violins, Bridgid Bibbens, sits down with Ian to talk about how she transformed from being a school strings teacher to violin-rockstar and spokesperson for the Electrify Your Strings program. EYS is a string education initiative founded by Mark Wood, and it is quickly sweeping the nation.

Bridgid also details the process of making one of Mark Wood’s famous Viper instruments (and then proceeds to rock out with a familiar tune from Liverpool, England).

Be sure to check out the pictures and video below. Once the cameras stopped rolling we had a chance to play some of Wood’s instruments, and what a rush that was! It was undoubtedly some of the most fun I’ve had in a long… long time.

    Your Father and I go back to the beginning of time. I remember a little girl with this tiny violin in the Greater Weedsport Area. You’ve grown to be a beautiful young lady and a very talented one. I love the quality sound of the Viper vs. metalic quitar.
