You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Fresh out of the oven, pizza all from scratch. Homemade crust, of course but even sun dried tomatoes I sun dried myself. Feelin’ sassy. As you can see, only I like salami. #fiddlerswhocook #foodporn #pizzanight #buylocal #growyourown  (at Lynch Chowning Music Camp Headquarters)</p>

<p>This fiddle belongs to a now grown up used to be little fiddler student of mine. I was there when he picked it out and it was (and I’m sure still is) one of the best half size fiddles I’ve ever heard. I can’t believe my signature is just a tailpiece away from John Hartford’s… The stories these instruments could tell. Parents, don’t let go of your little fiddles if you can help it. You never know when it might help someone else get his/her start or reignite the old passion for music. #fiddle #memories #johnhartford #buddyspicher #darolanger #danitagardner #byronberline</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...
