More About mrfiddle

The violin has been a major force in my life for over 50 years. I play many styles, teach online and in my home, perform around South Florida and am always experimenting with new sounds and directions for my instrument.
Fun Stuff about the Artist

Life on the Street

I used to busk in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts back in the early 70s with a Bluegrass band called, "The Beantown Rhythm Boys". It was a lot of fun. I've been thinking it would be fun to busk again. Hoping that Street Jelly will be that place.

Embarrassing Moment

While using a wireless transmitter on my violin in a crowded nightclub, one night I decided to run through the crowd while playing a fast tune. When I rounded a corner, there was a chair in front of me that I hadn't seen. I jumped up on it, but it went over dropping me to the floor like a rock. I only stopped playing for a measure or two... stumbled to my feet, and limped back to the stage with a bloody knee finishing the tune as I went. The band was doubled over in laughter.

My Instrument

I have several violins... standard, five string, six string, seven string, chin cello. They are all special to me. None have names.
