You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>#tbt to a pre-show dinner with Chris Stuart and Backcountry somewhere in Prince Edward Island circa 2006. Most of the time touring is a lot less satisfying than people imagine. Sometimes it’s this. #momanddad #lobsterlife #pei #bluegrass  (at Prince Edward Island)</p>

<p>We get so much joy out of being able to give our campers awesome stuff from @daddarioandco They have the very best tuners, strings, and assorted accoutrement. I use Helicore fiddle strings and the Micro Tuner my own self and we’re so just so happy to be associated with them. Nashville Acoustic Camps loves D' />

If you are a toddler and you are wearing a #flatpickerinside onesie and you are also the child of @kennyandamandas you could probably do a lot worse than positioning yourself in front of @molly_tuttle during some Billy in the Lowground. #nashvilleflatpickcamp #wellplayed #hussanddaltonguitars (at Fiddlestar)

<p>Registration opens November 1 at 9am Central. Previous campers (who get to register early) have already snagged a handful of spots so it’s looking to sell out almost immediately. Clawhammer in the Spring. Beautiful. @clawhammerist #clawhammer #banjo #nashville  (at Fiddlestar)</p>

Someone (and by someone I mean @johnmailander ) showed @chrisluq1 the Bebot app and this mini jam got one level weirder. Not for nothin, Tristan really did master the 5 string resonator mandolin fairly quickly though. #ofcoursehedid #bebot #latenightcampjams #nashvilleflatpickcamp #gibsonguitars #tophergaylemandolins @mandolin2842 (at Fiddlestar)

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...
