played classical when i was young/gave it up for sports/my grandfather who was a very acomplished fiddle player left me an old stainer fiddle.my dad had it restored by don hood of tahlequah,ok. and asked me to make him a cd of his favorite fiddle songs,so i bought some books and went to work. i am on a mission, my dad has cancer and i wish to make him happy.
