Enjoying fiddle playing more than ever lately

Sunday, August 11, 2019

Having a blast playing the many fiddle tunes I've learned over the years. I'm recording them so that I don't forget them. Here's a link to them if anyone wants to hear all my tom-foolery. :)

My name is Fred and my nickname is "Wilford". Together with my wife, Mary, nicknamed "Effie", we used to operate "The Sound Mill" which was a division of "Balsam Studios". We were located in Jay, New York, right in the middle of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. "Balsam Studios" has been around since 1988 and "The Sound Mill" came into being 11 years ago when we began doing sound tracks for small-scale film documentaries. We've since moved to Eastern Tennessee and no longer have a working studio since it's all packed up with some of the major components sold. We now have a mini version here in TN and we still call it "The Sound Mill". Hope you enjoy our music. Now we've moved to Arkansas and no longer are running the Sound Mill. It's put away while we're busy here in Searcy. Edit: As of late 2021, we are now living in Heber Springs, Arkansas. Be sure and stop by the website:
