You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>On a boat in the beautiful #oslofjorden where the first mate gave us free peanuts left over from a fancy party and we got to see all of Oslo from the water. Bonus trivia - we also sailed by the architecture firm that will be designing the new #goldenstatewarriors arena. #Oslo #motherdaughterroadtrip  (at Mini Cruise Oslo)</p>

<p>Just landed in Oslo, Norway. Every trip we take, I plan a little surprise for Mur - something she doesn’t know about until it’s just about to happen. This time it’s a day in Norway. Taking a cruise around the fjord in a couple of hours. Will report back shortly… #fjords #oslo #motherdaughterroadtrip  (at Gardermoen Airport)</p>

<p>A triumphant pose, holding our post-encore flowers from the venue’s hostess. This place was a class act from start to finish. We had a fabulous time performing as a duo and for those of you keeping track, here were tonight’s requests, shouted out from the audience. 1. Man of Constant Sorrow 2. Devil Went Down to Georgia 3. Arkansas Traveler   We made one person very happy. #fiddlebanjo #bluegrass #stockholm #onenightonly #motherdaughterroadtrip  (at Rost Stockholm)</p>

<p>Here we are, each sitting inside a diving bell, similar to the one used to help raise the Vasa, which capsized almost 400 years ago. We would have been super good at this job. #vasa #stockholm #motherdaughterroadtrip  (at Vasamuseet / The Vasa Museum)</p>

<p>Exploring the streets of Stockholm after a lovely dinner. Yes, it’s still light out and the air does seem cleaner. Also, drizzling rain in the air and shrimp everywhere on the menu. Except here it’s shrimps. #motherdaughterroadtrip #stockholm  (at Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm)</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...
