Eastbourne Festival Winner Fred And His Fiddle!


The winner of Eastbourne Festival’s String category, Freddie Elmberg, has been in today to record his piece. Freddie, accompanied by his mother, Karin, played a beautiful piano & fiddle classical duet. We can see why he won! Fred, aged just 13, has already been playing for 7 years and it shows – he really knows how to use that bow! As well as the fiddle, Fred also plays the piano and sings. So it’s not surprising to hear that he has recently been awarded a music scholarship to King’s House School in Richmond.

Fred in action

 

Although Fred is only 13, his violin was made in 1908 and has obviously survived the test of time. It still sounds truly excellent. Among other things, Fred’s hobbies include Rugby and Clay Pigeon Shooting.
