You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Sunday morning camp prep with my helper. I love this time - CBS Sunday Morning on in the background, thinking about all the fun people we’ll be welcoming in a few days. #nametags #checks #spreadsheets #nashvillemandolincamp #bostonterrier #flatnosedogsociety #mandolin  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>NBD just my husband in a guitar catalog surrounded by a bunch of musicians who I think are super kickass which makes him super kickass which I already knew but it’s always nice when other people see what you see. Also, these are fabulous guitars. #kickasshusband #thompsonguitars #nashville #myhusbandisinaguitarcatalog (at Carter Vintage Guitars)</p>

Swung by @theviolinshop today to see @cleliahart but found out she was off site repping the shop at a Suzuki event on the west side so I thought, why not head over there and see if she needed any company? Well she did, and we chatted a bunch and caught up on life and things and then we decided to wander around and try to find the room where the final recital was being held and lo and behold there they were and it was just the most magical thing. We were both so moved and it just reminded us how much joy there is in the world and in music and aren’t we just lucky… Here’s a little clip of what we found. #suzuki #mtsa #nashville #notallwhowanderarelost #twinklevariations #violin (at St. Cecilia Academy)

<p>Major #tbt to about 10 years ago when 3 Fox Drive played a show with the late great Richie Havens at the grand opening of the Wild Center in the Adirondack Mts. This was an incredible time for me, musically. I learned so much and had so many once-in-a-lifetime moments swirling around me all the time. I am still so grateful to Kim Fox and everyone in that band for teaching me a million things and encouraging me to move to #Nashville in the first place. #richiehavens #bandsofthepast #3foxdrive  (at The Wild Center)</p>

<p>He did such a good job getting his bath, I gave him a treat. Then he came inside and threw it up all over the living room rug. #ingrate #sirwinstoncup #bostonterrier #flatnosedogsociety  (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...
