My father was a fiddler. The first music I ever heard was Winston Fitzgerld coming through the speakers of our turntable. I didn’t get a fiddle in my hands until I was 13, but it’s been there ever since. There have been many times during my career when people thought that’s all I did!! It is the most difficult to master, yet the most emotionally expressive instrument that I know.
