sometimes in tune: about us

I studied violin in Middle School (called Junior High School way back when) for 2 or 3 years. At the time my uncle called it a "fiddle" and I was highly incensed. "No," I said, "it's a violin!" In the early 90's, Joel and I became very interested in bluegrass music and after hearing a lot of fiddle music I decided to study bluegrass fiddle. I'm still playing that same instrument that I insisted was a "violin".

Besides taking lessons, I have attended some wonderful music camps, such as:
• Mark O'Connor Fiddle Camp in San Diego
• Bluegrass at the Beach in Oregon
• Roanoke Bluegrass Weekend in Virginia
• Bobby Hicks Fiddle Workshop in Texas

Playing fiddle is one of the highlights of my life!
