Will You Open The Forbidden Door?

HOW far would you go for someone you loved?  Don't open that door! Welcome to a cinema of the mind with their visceral combination of live music and dynamic storytelling, The Devil's Violin weaves an enchantment of melody and mystery. As soon as the rule is laid down, we know it will be broken. Once the door is opened, then what? Adventures! All of us love a good tale, and this is a wonderful 1.

"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." Venue Magazine

"An enchantment, a work that walks the line between life and death, which recognises with the power of voice and the power of music, that there is magic everywhere." The Times

The Devil's Violin has been breathing new life into the ancient art of storytelling since 2006. Acclaimed storyteller Daniel Morden is joined by virtuoso musicians Sarah Moody, Dylan Fowler and Oliver Wilson Dickson. Drawing on influences from Folk and World to Jazz and Classical, the music and story work as one, transporting you into a world of the imagination.
