#waybackwednesday @belafleckbanjo & The Flecktones - playing bluegrass in new and inventive ways with a ton of virtuosity #belafleck #belafleckandtheflecktones #bluegrass #progressivebluegrass #jamband #jambands

In the build up to the launch of 'Topspin', we're going to be gradually introducing you to one instrument a week that was used on the recording. Some you'll know from our live shows, others are a little less familiar.

First up, meet Dino, Laura's violin.

Named after Laura's favourite crooner, Dean Martin, Dino says inside that he's Italian (Gio Batta Castelli, Fecit Genua, 1736) but it's more probable that he's English. He may be roughly the age he says he is, in parts at least, but who knows really! Laura fell in love at first sight when she spotted him across a crowded room full of violins at the Gardiner Houlgate auction house where she was accompanying Charlotte to look at a Gibson L5 guitar which, predictably, went for more than Charlotte could afford. Despite the many old repaired woodworm runs, cracks, sunken top and the fact that he sounded absolutely terrible, Laura somehow found herself back at the auction house two days later waving a number in the air... It took a year or so of playing and several experiments with different strings (turns out he loves Thomastik Roby Lakatos signature strings) before he started to open out, but he's gradually turning into a really lovely instrument. His small scale (closer to 7/8ths than full size) makes him a great instrument for someone with small hands plus Laura's had him for nearly 3 years now and he still hasn't imploded - perfect!

SO excited! Got tickets to see Chris Thile and Punch Brothers in August, at this gorgeous theatre, built in 1927, in downtown Los Angeles. ❤️🎼🎻✨

One of my favorite bands. Love Punch Brothers! 💙

Stop everything you're doing (unless it's brain surgery or something) and follow @thelilsmokies . They jammed some hardcore tunes at @pearlstreetlive tonight. #progressivebluegrass #banjobanjobanjo #praisethehandsthatentertainyou

Lil Smokies absolutely killed it last night at The Sinclair during their double set! Seeing these guys perform makes my heart so happy. It’s such a joy to be able to see them play in Boston. #localmusic #lilsmokies #bluegrass #progressivebluegrass #signedposter #thankful #appreciationpost #happy #myheartisfull #missoula #montana #music

Many of you might not know this, but if you’ve wondered why I so often use #bluegrass and folk music in my #shredits, my family plays a bit part of that. My father, Joe Weed, is a professional bluegrass musician and is releasing an original album, his first in over ten years, on the 14th of February. My sister @katieweedomm and I made this promo video for the upcoming album, titled “Two Steps West of the Mississippi”, and I have a link in my bio to where you can preview and preorder if you’re interested! After being dragged to countless bluegrass shows and festivals during my childhood, it’s awesome to now be able to appreciate this sort of upbringing!
