Eine Kleine Nachtmusik


There was an unopened violin case sitting around during the Creatives Pot Luck. As I was getting ready to leave I heard the unmistakable sound across the room and headed back over. I took five years of violin lessons when I was young. Good ear, poor coordination, general failure.

Heather Bell, who we have already met, was playing beautifully. (Some mystic connection to Joshua Bell?) You can't see it in this picture, which I chose for the best overall pose, but her left hand position is perfect, arched fingers hammering straight down on the strings. She's had some serious training.

Her companion,whose name I did not note, also played. His was more of a free-form, improvisatory style. I'm glad I got to hear them both.

Your first shot really stands out.

How fortunate to have not left already!

Don Brandon is the other fiddler. Actually, I didn't know how to play fiddle until I met him-- I only played violin before that.
