My first fiddle was purchased as a Christmas Present from my Dad for me. I found it under the tree on Christmas Morning and that was the fiddle I got started on.
I am now on a custom made instrument that was made for me by Allan Curtis and had it revampt by Rachalle Turgeon, a Luthier who runs her business in Prince George, British Columbia.
My 1st fiddle is currently in a Shaddow Box, hanging on the wall back home in my Parents Place.
I have many, cannot pin point one. Depends on the mood I am in.

I am a 30 year old twit, from British Columbia, Canada. I am Irish Canadian and have been playing the fiddle for over 6 years. I am self taught, but learnt allot from the fiddling community I grew up in, played with and performed with. I used to teach, I had up to 30 students who are still flourishing and moving forward as musicians. Very proud! I was very involved with the Fiddling Community, I performed at Music Festivals, Dances, Bluegrass Festivals, and competed regularily at Fiddle Contests. I'm now living in the U.S.A, near Chicago, in Michigan - and getting accustomed to the U.S.A way of life. I am hoping to get involved in the Irish Community and hoping to move forward in the Tradititional Irish Fiddling. I am quirky, bubbly and love to laugh. I am also very sarcastic. Nice to meet you! Live, Love and Laugh! Life is too short! Be sure to leave on a good note.
