Violin and caseAbout this object
This cased violin apparently belonged to Dick Wybrow of the Wybrow band and is likely to be the one he is holding in the photograph of the band that is also held at Waikawa Museum.
They performed at local functions and weddings for many years and people can still recall Dick singing and playing his fiddle. The case contains many of the original spare parts essential when the band was on the road.
