Aspiring fiddler and fiddle maker!

Been playing fiddle a wee 3 years now and it kind of took over my life. Recently relocated from Fairbanks, AK to Surry County North Carolina to learn to build fiddles with Joe Thrift.

I play (study??) Irish traditional (and dabble in Old-time). My favorite fiddlers are Julia Clifford, Dennis Murphy, Padraig O’Keefe, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Junior Crehan, Kevin Crehan, Paddy Cronin, Oisín Mac Diarmada, James Kelly.
