You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<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>

<p>Rumor has that many of these things are close to, or are completely sold out. But I think there might still be room in the Seattle and Bellingham fiddle and banjo workshops. Check out FiddleStar dot com for links to register. Adam Hurt and I really want to hang out with you. #insideout #pnw #fiddle #banjo #fiddlebanjo #oldtime #texasstyle  (at Pacific Northwest)</p>

<p>Strawberry Fields, of course. I only remember the Beatles in reruns but these ladies were there the first time ‘round. #strawberryfields #nyc2016 #motherdaughterroadtrip  (at Imagine Mosaic in Strawberry Fields/Central Park)</p>

<p>We take the subway. Traveling with my mom is the very best and I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned today how grateful and lucky I feel to have her and to share these experiences. Because I most certainly am. #nyc2016 #motherdaughterroadtrip  (at 42nd Street Subway Station, New York City)</p>

<p>And another of our favorite campers made the effort to swing by our hotel yesterday afternoon (and brought his son, who I’d not yet had the privilege of meeting) just to say hi. Jim comes to flatpick camp and is a thoughtful musician who looks after everyone at camp. Also,he’s had more interesting jobs than anyone I know and is super fascinating. We love him. #nashvilleflatpickcamp #flatpicking #bluegrass  (at Row NYC Hotel)</p>

<p>The joint band end of show cluster was even pretty damn good. I took notes tonight. Some fine showmanship all around. #bluegrass #fiddle #banjo #oldtime #acousticrootsmusic  (at City Winery NYC)</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...
