You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>I’m so proud of my cousin (top row, far right) Jessica Erin Judd and her organization Big Moves, I can hardly stand it. They are a non-profit organization that offers an opportunity for people of all sizes to learn to dance and perform on stage. And now they’re being featured in a campaign for @rainbeaucurves ! JJ and the Big Moves crew are super badass. Rock on! #celebratemysize #honormycurves #everybodydancenow #bigmoves #effyourbeautystandards</p>

<p>Loved getting to catch up with a former camper and always friend. Marie McGlone came to the first few FiddleStar Youth Camps and always made everyone’s experience more joyful and fun. Now she’s a student at Belmont University getting a great education and playing great music. So proud of sweet Marie! #fiddle #fiddlestar  (at The Fiddle House)</p>

<p>One of our campers made bags for each of her fellow campers, featuring the tunes they’re working on and the names of all the teachers. These are the kinds of people who come to our camp. This job is so much more than a job - it’s a reminder that humanity is full of kind and generous people. Adam and I love you all. #fiddlestarcamp #fiddle #kindnessandgenerosity  (at Fiddlestar Camps)</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...
