In the inaugural episode of the 'Rockstar Violinist' podcast, Electric Violin Shop's Matt Bell interviews rock violin legend and electric violin pioneer Mark Wood on the floor of the NAMM show. Mark Wood shares stories about:
- his classical viola upbringing
- his entry into rock music
- his experiences performing and touring with world renowned acts like Celine Dion and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra
- his invention of the Viper electric violin, first as a performance instrument for himself, then as the flagship instrument for his instrument company Wood Violins.
The MuzArt World Foundation has invited Mark Wood to be the host and featured artist for a huge concert event called “We Are Hope” to celebrate music education and we’re putting out the call to electric and acoustic violins, violas, cellos, and basses to be part of the world’s first virtual symphony orchestra.
