You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>I don’t really care for things, I much prefer experiences. (Aside from shoes, shoes are super important.) However, this thing brings me great joy. It was handmade in Pico, one of the Azore Islands from which my mother’s side of the family comes. She and I visited there together in 2013 and I will always treasure the memories of that trip. It is a volcanic island so much of the clay is black. #greentea #theazores #morningroutine  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>The thing about the #nashvillemandolincamp is that if you tell us that you teach better in your Alaskan slippers, we believe you. #mandolin @fsolivan #bluegrass #nashville  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>What a night last night - I got to play with the Grammy nominated Special Consensus as well as CMA Song of the Year writer Larry Cordle and IBMA Songwriter of the year @jonweisberger so yeah, the songs were pretty good, if you were wondering. #songwriter #nashvillesongwritercamp #fiddle  (at Station Inn)</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...
