At the Broken Spoke

The kids had a lot of fun last night at their final gig wrapping up summer fiddle camp.

One of many broken spokes.

Taking it all in after tuning.

Warming up.

At least we remembered all of the kids' violins. There was one fiddler who brought her case...but it was empty.


The Blazing Bows

The teenagers were featured in the Seven Wicked Reels, so you can't see our kids in this clip...but they're in back playing.

Reel 4

The show finished up with a few dance tunes including "Cotton Eye Joe."

Jimmer said the best part was sliding on the dance floor with friends when they were finished! (Their performance was 1-1/2 hours, so they needed to get a little energy out of their systems when it was over!)

A fun night!

I just can't get over how GOOD they are! Did you tell me yet if they were still in piano lessons, in addition to violin?

Yes, the three older kids are in piano. They take a break from piano lessons in the summer though.

What a great experience for them! I can't believe that they *all* are taking lessons and that you don't have one who complains that he/she doesn't want to do it. That's so nice that they all play the same instrument together. :)
