This violin is labeled Patrick Joseph Barden, Armagh 2019.
Patrick Barden first trained and worked as a horticulturist in his family nursery and garden center in Northern Ireland. Eventually, his love of building acoustic instruments brought him to Newark School of Violin Making in England, and later took him across the ocean to study bow making in Salt Lake City. In 2007, he moved back to Ireland and established Patrick Joseph Barden Violins. His style is decidedly Cremonese and he continues to research and experiment with each new instrument. This violin is available for trial via shipping and in our showroom.
