You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>And then @clawhammerist and I did the thing we both love almost as much as we love eating food of all shapes. Shoe shopping. Hello lovely Fluevogs! And thanks to Jim for delightful service… #tourlife #pnw #canadianshoeshopping #fluevog #insideout  (at John Fluevog Boots & Shoes LTD)</p>

<p>And then this sort of seemed like the middle of the road for @clawhammerist and me. Nutritious and delicious, with a hint of decadence. Road food strikes again. #tourlife #pnw #insideout #crepes #roadfood  (at Magdalena’s)</p>

<p>I can’t speak to that activity specifically, but I did come up with a fairly comprehensive list of other things for which that bathroom is too filthy. #insideout #pnw #tourlife  (at Roosevelt Shell)</p>

<p>Sitting by the fire on Bainbridge Island. Found Howard Marshall’s fabulous book on Missouri fiddlers and the opening quote was just too good not to share. #pnw #fiddle #insideout #fiddlebanjo #missourifiddling #missouri (at Bainbridge Island, Washington)</p>

<p>Are you sensing a theme??? @clawhammerist and I ate these things for lunch yesterday. We swear we’ll eat something more nutritious tomorrow. Road food is what you make it. #insideout #fiddlebanjo  (at La Provence Lake Oswego)</p>

<p>@clawhammerist spotted a place that claimed to feature two things - chai and donuts. Pretty much a road food no brainer. Delicious way to start this tour. #insideout #oldtime #fiddlebanjo  (at Pip’s Original Doughnuts)</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...
