You Can be a FiddleStar

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

<p>Heading to my friend Kelley’s house with a little Irish soda bread on a “pass it along” plate given to me by my student, dear Ivy. My grandmother made the worst soda bread ever so I’m thankful to @testkitchen for the ability to right historical wrongs. #fiddlerswhocook  (at Lynch Chowning Music Camp Headquarters)</p>

<p>I love my life and I love Nashville, but when I miss California it’s this view I’m thinking of. This is from the wheel house of Capt. Bill’s boat. I used to work with him on the bay and it’s about the best “office” you can imagine. Happy New Year and here’s to a year of fabulous views… #sfbay #sanfrancisco  (at Under The Bay Bridge)</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...
