You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Come to camp. See the kitchen. See it from the dining room. You couldn’t do that before. #lesscabinetspacemorejoy #discobacksplash  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

<p>One of the absolute highlights of our recent trip was this dinner with these two lovely people. The conversation was lively and varied - jokes and poignant times and keen insights everywhere! These two are funnier in their second and third languages than many people I know are in the first. Also, fabulous food and perfect service, ftw. Much love for this four hours of our lives… #stockholm #motherdaughterroadtrip #dinnerpartyperfection  (at Bar Nombre)</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...
