fiddle I thought that this was for that. But.. My fiddle is a Leon Bernadel shop instrument from 1933. It is one of those that might be described as a step up student instrument. It is red. It sounds red, or maybe maroon. I like it.

My banjo buddy (he also plays mandolin and guitar), Jim Whitesell and I had a volunteer gig at The Fairbank, AZ "ghost town". The BLM puts on an annual festival with Spanish colonial soldiers, hikes to the old Spanish fort about 3 miles away, hikes to the old Fairbank cemetery, various presentations on the local flora and fauna, B company 4th Cavalry with their horses and bronze cannon and a reenactment of a ca 1900 train robbery that took place just down the bluff from the town. ( Fairbank was the station for Tombstone, about 20 miles away, and a couple of ore milling towns up and down the line) They kindly allowed us to put out a tip jar, so I guess we were busking. It was a beautiful AZ spring day. Temperatures were in the high 70's, the sun was shining, it was lovely. We played for about 4 hours and made more than enough to pay for gas and lunch. We also had a very good time. so did the little girl that I was photographed with below. When kids dance to our music, I am a completely happy man.
