As soon as you said "Yellville", I thought "Violet Hensely"!

Violet Hensley is a wonderful old time fiddler as was her father. I have had the pleasure to meet & play fiddle with her. She is also a pretty good fiddle maker. Hilly<

Wow! I am now a fan. Did you see hear fiddlin' with her fiddle atop her head? Alright, so she's doing this stuff into her 90's. I guess I don't need to rush things....

I've never been to Yellville yet but when I researched my Daddy's people, that's where they were from, Yellville.

Hey, love that new avatar. That's the way I want to live. Dang shame I'm stuck here in the big city. You're not only inspiring me to try and build another cigar box fiddle, but you forced me to change my avatar too.
