As part of Fiddler Magazine’s 20th Anniversary celebration, they will release a compilation CD with 20 Fiddlers spanning a wide range of styles including Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton, Bluegrass, Old time, Cajun, Jazz/Swing, Texas contest, Swedish, Mexican and Canadian. I composed a new song for this project to represent the Texas contest style and it is called “Fiddler’s Road”. The title of my song is taken from a small road by the farm where my parents lived and I was raised. Grayson County named the road “Fiddler’s Road” some years ago. They must of realized how many fiddler’s had traveled that road to my parents house and how much fiddling took place there. Thanks to Fiddler Magazine for asking me to be a part of their 20th Anniversary CD!
The Time Jumpers have just finished recording a song with Asleep at the Wheel for their upcoming Album project. While they were in Nashville, AATW recorded songs with several other artists and I played twin fiddles with Jason Roberts on a couple of those. What a blast!
Miranda Lambert has asked The Time Jumpers to record a song with her for her next album project. Can’t wait!
A huge thanks to all my family and friends who came to the Time Jumpers show last night at Choctaw Casino in Durant, OK. It was a thrill to play for you all and I hope everyone enjoyed the show. Hope to see you all again real soon!
