It’s one of the perks of the job of photographing musicians – when you arrange to take their photos, you often end up being treated to a personal musical performance – there can’t be many jobs that have that bonus.
This one was an unusual one for me, as I more commonly photograph traditional musicians. Alison gave me a lovely short concert, playing first playing cello, then viol – what a privilege!
