You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Don’t know if you remember the goat cheese zucchini tart @clawhammerist and I got to eat in Bellingham a few weeks ago but I sure did and I couldn’t live another day without it. Bought the @inagarten cookbook, scheduled a dinner party, and got to work. #fiddlerswhocook #barefootcontessa  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>#sirwinstoncup and I took advantage of this gorgeous day and my lighter than usual teaching schedule and got out of our normal routine. A new walk in the park resets the spirit… #bostonterrier #bostonterriercult #flatnosedogsociety #springfever  (at Ridgetop Station Walking Park)</p>

<p>#tbt The watch my father bought me for my 21st birthday. He took me shopping and let me pick it out. I’m 41 now and he’s been dead for over 10 years. He was a kind and generous man and I miss him daily. He was also damn punctual so this gift always brings back perfect memories of him. #lombarditime #ifyoureontimeyourelate  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>Loved this moment at #nashvilleflatpickcamp with @adamschlenker I was proud to play with him in the staff concert and proud to know him all the time. Also, it appears I am now a hat person. Thanks to @flipsidehats for all the upcycled cuteness. #martinguitar #fiddle #flatpicking (photo stolen from Adam Schlenker) (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>Loved listening to this jam from the stairs. Heard my husband play things I’ve never heard him play before. He was having so much fun and that’s the best feeling… I love this camp, these campers and teachers, and our life. #nashvilleflatpickcamp #flatpicking #guitar #nashville  (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...
