String Summit and RockyGrass completed! Looking forward to Swannanoa Fiddle Week!

Hello Fiddlers,

Shasta Camp; The Northwest String Summit in Oregon; RockyGrass and the RockyGrass Academy in Lyons, Colorado; all completed!

The Big Chill Band ( Mr Sun & Emy Phelps & Tony Trischka ) at RG

Swannanoa Fiddle Week was a fabulous convocation of picking geniuses, and some of the most wonderful students to be found outside the hallowed Artistworks halls. I had tons of fun with fellow Profs Tony trischka, Mike Marshall, and other great friends such as Matt Flinner, Emory Lester, Mark Johnson, Bruce Molsky, and I got an incredible interview for us with the phenomenal jazz fiddler Billy Contreras.

Some great jamming and visiting with Fiddle Schoolers Ryan, Joel, and Woolybear, and a totally wild ConcertWindow broadcast... the first from Rockygrass! And a great interview with the amazing Irish fiddler Adam Agee is in the can, dealing with the many intricacies of Irish fiddle ornamentation.

Lots of exciting things have already happened this year: The Sedona Bluegrass Festival, a great trip to the Yukon Territory, the Strings Without Boundaries fiddle camp in Washington, and the Berklee Roots Weekend Workshop.... I'm getting better at sleeping on an airplane.

thanks for being here, folks! I have some down time in Nashville, and will respond to as many video submissions as I can this week!
