Steve Wickham is an Irish rock violinist and since the mid-1980s he's a member of The Waterboys. During his long-lasting career Steve has performed all over the world and collaborated with Sinéad O’Connor, Bob Dylan and U2, among others.

For 25 years he played his most beloved fiddle ever, a Geronimo Grandini senior. In 2004, Steve -also referring to the great Apache leader- names his first solo album after Geronimo. But in 2012 his violin is irreparably damaged during a flight with British Airways.

Willem van den Broek and Erwin Rademaker, two friends and fans of The Waterboys for many years, are inspired by this loss. They decide to look for an identical violin.
