Cape Breton based fiddler-luthier
Otis Tomas is a modern-day Rennaisance man. In this incomparable book
he displays a rare combination of talents - articulate writing, tasty
original composing and stunning photos of his Fiddletree instruments
- all built using the wood from one maple tree which he cut 17 years
In addition to inspiring
philosphical writing, Otis gives insights into his work as a luthier.
The project is complemented by a recording of striking original
arrangements all performed using Fiddletree instruments - all
composed by Otis.
