You Can be a FiddleStar

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

Getting ready to board the @chiarchitecture boat tour. It was snowing hard and we were in the shadow of Trump Tower. C'mon Chicago. I know you’re not TRYING to make me mad… 😳 #chicago #thesnowycity #itsapril (at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago)

<p>Thanks @daddarioandco for the awesome tuners for our #nashvilleclawhammercamp campers! They and we are so grateful! I refuse to make the requisite banjo tuning jokes here. #restraint #banjo #daddario  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>So many questions. Why does the Ridgetop Dollar General have Turkish cookies? Why have I never seen them before? Are the Turks known for delicious cookies? Is there a secret Turkish population in Ridgetop driving the stock decisions at the Dollar General? I told you, lots of questions. #biscolata #turkey #cookies #dollargeneral #whatarethesedoinghere  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>A really nice date afternoon with my handsome and hilarious husband. He makes me laugh daily. I’m also super impressed that he managed to get all the things he loves onto one shirt. #gocards #kiss #guitars  (at Burger UP)</p>

<p>If only half of the #nashvilleclawhammercamp shirts are folded when you all get here, this is why. #helping #sirwinstoncup #bostonterrier #flatnosedogsociety #banjo  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>And this branch doesn’t yet have decaffeinated offerings (other than tea) so I had to settle for chocolate. The selections were outstanding and the service impeccable. #tragic #defeatedbytemptation #coffeeproblems #idrinkdecaf  (at Barista Parlor Germantown)</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...
