A master luthier, a fellow cellist, and a congenial friend!  All of us string players are fortunate to have Francis nearby.

Francis Morris has been serving as my Luthier for over 25 years, and I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend his genius talents.

His talents in working on my celli over the years have been  remarkable and inspirational. And perhaps his wonderful personality and expertise is
the best possible.

I so value my long relationship with Francis Morris.
He runs an Artist’s shop, and keeps it like
my cello - human, warm and responsive.
Francis is a flexible, creative problem-solver.
He listens with open ears to what I need from my instrument - and applies that to suit my varied and unusual performance and recording situations.
I adore working with him.
