You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Earlier today I had the pleasure of playing a few tunes with my precious student Kali who was entertaining in support of her foundation that helps returning soldiers. Yep. She’s an awesome talented fiddle playing kid with her foundation. We all might take a moment to ask ourselves what we did today to make the world a better place than when we found it. Kali does, every day. #love #supportourtroops #fiddle @violinsofig  (at Weiser Classic Candy)</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...
