This past weekend we grabbed the kids and their fiddles and escaped to the mountains of north Georgia for a weekend of bluegrass and old time music at Bear on the Square. Once again, the kids couldn’t get enough of playing their fiddles on the street. And once again, they drew crowds.
This year Fletcher had the opportunity to take an old-time fiddle class with Erynn Marshall, which was absolutely the highlight of his weekend. I’m guessing he was the youngest in the class by a good 25 years or more, but he held his own and left the class buzzing with excitement. No wonder, really, since she was seriously amazing and had a wonderful rapport with him. He is now begging for us to let him do lessons with her via Skype!
