My Instruments: Fiddle, and piano a little. I currently have five fiddles -- 2 nice Chinese Song fiddles for standard tuning, and 3 other old beaters from Germany and the U.S. which I keep for cross tuning.
Favorite Bands/Musicians: Too many to list. I'm partial to most fiddle music, old-time to classical, and especially like old-time string bands like the Carolina Chocolate Drops. I also favor ragtime in all forms -- fiddle, string band and piano.
