Violinist Nicola Benedetti Talks to Brian Lauritzen About Going from Strings to the Silver Screen and Back Again
Violinists don't often take the stage on late night talk shows, but that's exactly what Nicola Benedetti did during her last visit to Los Angeles. The Scottish violinist was a guest on her countryman Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show to promote her new album The Silver Violin.

Benedetti stopped by the KUSC studios to talk to Brian Lauritzen about her album's unique concept and unusual success.
