You Can be a FiddleStar

I post things about fiddling. And how we can all be better at it.

<p>The scene on the way to teach Walker Creek Camp this morning. I’m no expert, but A. This is creepy. And B. This is too many vultures for one rabbit. #bluegrasshalloween #circleoflife (at Walker Creek Ranch Outdoor School and Conference Center)</p>

<p>More great kids from the Musical Petting Zoo this morning - then on the way out I heard the dulcet tones of Aaron Till on fiddle in the Carolyn Martin Swing Band and had to stop and listen. It was pretty cool to recognize that any of those young kids could grow up to be the next great swing player, just like Aaron… Even little Elliott Mangano (kickin it cello style, upper left). Check that out @lukebulla and @cntsongs! #ilovemyjob #fiddle #swingmusic #roryhoffmanrules  (at The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jackson)</p>

I am excited to embark on a new chapter of my working life - I recently gave my notice to the Pam Tillis organization and will no longer be touring with her or Lorrie Morgan (on their awesome Grits and Glamour Tour). I must admit, I'm sad to be leaving. It's been an incredible four years and I have learned so much. Thanks to Pam, her amazing husband/manager Matt Spicher, and my bandmates, especially the lovely and talented Mary Sue Englund, with whom I spent more time over the last few years than I did with my husband. And I wouldn't trade a minute of it...
