You Can be a FiddleStar

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

#sirwinstoncup got his first rawhide this week. He doesn’t talk to us anymore. #bostonterrier #bostonterriercult #dogtreats (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)

<p>Apparently it’s my friend Ross’ birthday. So here’s a picture of him playing a tiny fiddle. Annoyingly, this sounded better than most people sound on the big kid size. #happybirthday #lilfiddler #fiddle #stannesreel  (at Sugar Dive)</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...
