You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>I could be wrong, but I feel like this looks like exactly the energy I think I’m putting out into the world. And oh, what the hell. Caption it if you’re so inclined. #nashvillefiddlebanjocamp #yougetafiddleandyougetafiddleandyougetafiddle #horsedonkeyhorsecow #vog_gladstone  (at Fiddlestar)<br/>

I’m so proud of Anne Duffus. She’s only been playing for a couple of years and here she is performing a fantastic tune she wrote. It’s a beautiful melody and she plays it with such consistent tone and rhythm. Anne works hard. Anne loves music. This is often where people would normally write “Be like Anne” but I’m not feeling that as the lesson here. 😉 Truth is, we should all just try to be the very best versions of ourselves and if we can learn anything from Anne, it’s just the reminder that it’s never too late to pursue your dreams. Cheesy, sure. But not wrong. (I’ll post the full video on the FiddleStar Facebook page.) #nashvillefiddlebanjocamp #fiddleteacherlove #fiddle #waltzesrule (at Fiddlestar)

<p>Scenes from the Contra dance, Friday night. We learned our lesson and made sure to attend the pre-dance lesson. Makes all the difference. Also, classic Nashville that the dance band was filled with superstar acoustic genius. #nashvillefiddlebanjocamp #contradance #nashvillenights #newnashville  (at Second Presbyterian Church)<br/>

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...
