There must be a better way to stay on top of these blogs! My apologies for the long delays. I thank you for continuing to check in from time to time. If you want to stay a little more on top of what’s happening, please sign up for my newsletter. I am quite dependable to get that out once a month!
So the First National Fiddle Day was celebrated across the Country and I’m proud to say that I wrote a tune to commemorate the occasion! It spread far and wide in a matter of days and hours and I couldn’t be happier to hear all of you out there playing and sharing it. Thank you!
I am just back from the East coast and enjoyed two fiddle camps and two house concerts.
It was a pleasure to play a couple of shows with Skip Holmes! We have taught together for many years but never had the opportunity to play together! thanks Skip for doing such a great job.
I taught at my first camp in Cape Breton last weekend for another first to add to the collection. What an honour it was to be a part of such a talented group of musicians and teachers! Dwayne Cote put on a incredible show, as did Roger Stone, Allie Bennett, Richard Wood and many more! I had a great time and hope to do it again some time! They even made me an Honorary Cape Bretoner!
Now home for a rest before getting busy with Band performances this summer (Check out Westben!) along with another camp in Clear Lake, Manitoba and of course, the Grand Masters!
I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful spring/Summer! Cheers to you!
