You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>This is a set of house keys in a tree. I believe this is somehow a result of the beer can littering situation. You can’t tell me these things are not related. #anddontcomeback  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>Here’s a sampling of a 50 foot stretch of road just past our house. In a moment I’ll post what I believe to be a related picture… #40 #naturalice #buschice #nattylite #sigh (at Lynch Chowning Music Camp Headquarters)</p>

Yep. For my birthday my husband got me an autographed Benny Thomasson record. With all the cross tuned tunes on it. Clearly I married the right man. #bennythomasson #fiddle #fiddlegeek #fiddletunes #oldtime #texasstyle #dryanddusty @strngbrnr74 (at Lynch Chowning Music Camp Headquarters)

<p>Here’s a smattering of birthday weekend delightfulness and love. In case you’re wondering, 40 feels fabulous, especially when you’re surrounded by such supportive and incredible family and friends. Also, no one can be unhappy at a Tennessee Mafia Jig Band show. #40 #birthday #jugband #epice #jenisicecream #stationinn #digichristmasparty #igotatangerinecake  (at Lynch Chowning Music Camp Headquarters)</p>

<p>These right here are my celebratory vacation ribs. All my students better watch out because after 10 days off and a steady diet of #centerpointbbq I will be a teacher to be reckoned with. #fiddleteacheronvacation #ribs #staycation #fiddle  (at Lynch Chowning Music Camp Headquarters)</p>

<p>These people are my oldest friends in Nashville and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have made it through those first few years here if it weren’t for them. And my husband ain’t so bad either… 😉 #lucky #grateful #turkeydinner #tradition  (at Cottontown, Tennessee)</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...
