Visit School of Fiddle with Darol Anger

Hang on it's a long wild ride

Monday, March 26, 2012 @6:44:03 AM


So we just returned from the Harrison Ark. fiddler's convention...wow what a great time.  I spent a good portion of the day just listening to various  fiddlers and trying to get a feel for how things run then played with several different jams.  Realized how little I know but also realized that it's a continual journey and I have to accept where I am and pat myself on the back for sticking with it.  The fun is in the journey....and  I hope it's a long wild trip :)

In other noteworthy tidbit's I have been asked to play another civil war stone setting memorial which I am thrilled about.  Of all that I have done (which isn't much) this is my favorite and most heartwarming, and I consider it a great honor and privilege.   Also our little group (loosely used) has been asked to play at a civil war reenactment,  we are still trying to decide.  And last but certainly not least probably will be fiddling "the wedding march" at our daughter's wedding to take place here on the home place in May. Googled wedding march fiddled but didn't find much..any of youn's out there have a link.

Figured out bigger print for those of us over 40 :)

Found a mess of whites (morel mushrooms) the sun is shining I'm off work it's gonna be a blessed day.

Hey, Rene! The two you might be thinking of are "Wedding March" from "A Midsummer's Night Dream" by Felix Mendelsohn and "Bridal March" from "Lohengrin" by Richard Wagner.

Careful with mushrooms. Make certain of their identity before ingesting (or have an in-law try them first). Uhm tunes for daughter's wedding..? Hmmmmm. Oh--got it--"Ride of the Valkryries" by Wagner.

Don't eat any mushroom's before playing. It's a bummer when the fiddle starts melting and the bow makes colored trails.
