Yep, still around...

Thursday, September 18, 2008

It's been a busy summer! I have had a lot of playing this year, mostly fiddle but also banjo, guitar, bass, and some harmonica. Made some new Old Time musician friends out West (in N. Idaho and Spokane, WA) which has made trips out there much more enjoyable. Looking forward to the inevitable fall potlucks and winter woodshedding. Have fun, y'all! Ivar 1 comment
