Ekhard Seidl

Ekhard Seidl’s steady hand and concentration, so evident when watching him, can be traced back to his grandfather and the tradition of violin making in the town of Markneukirchen Germany. In a small shop on the second floor of his home, Ekhard works on the craft that has defined his family’s role in music making for hundreds of years. His interview was conducted while he worked, as if to demonstrate the process of making a violin is in everything he does.
