You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Also, if whoever put this in my fiddle case when I wasn’t looking wants to raise his or her hand, I promise there will be no consequences. You thought you were pretty funny, didn’t you? But joke’s on you, I totally still own a cassette player. #kennybakeroncassette #thingsifindinmyfiddlecase #thatsnothowyouspelleldredge  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>Last night was one of those extra special camp field trips. The show was extra good, the company was extra fun, and the Station Inn was extra full. #newnashville could not be more annoying these days so thank goodness there’s still plenty of #oldnashville to go around. Side note: @specialconsensus is not just one of the longest-running bluegrass bands. It’s one of the best. Thanks for letting me pick a few with you. #bluegrass #nashvilleflatpickcamp #nashvilleacousticcamps  (at Station Inn)</p>

<p>So much On and On happening right here. @adamschlenker is a super good teacher and musician and he thinks all the right things. You know, like, that everyone can play music and that they all should and that people communicating through music will probably solve all the world’s problems. Pretty sure that’s correct. #dropthumbsnotbombs #flatpick #thismachinekillsfacists #nashvilleflatpickcamp #nashvilleacousticcamps #guitar #martinguitar  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>Day One of #nashvilleflatpickcamp is complete. Lot of @thompsonguitars around the house this weekend and you’re welcome for choosing the outtake picture of Tim May making that face. Also, here are some of the new guys at camp, keeping it fresh and fun. I swear to you - it is still confusing to me that this is what I get to do for a living. #nashvilleacousticcamps #bluegrass #flatpick #guitar #martinguitar  (at Fiddlestar)</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...
