Fathers & Fiddles

The year is 1982 ~ the Blacksmith holds a brand new Fiddler boy.
(applied Kim Klassen Love & Mayzee textures)

FathersDayTwo

The year 2000, following Fiddler’s high school graduation ceremonies. 3 generations of “John” ~
(yes, it does get confusing. thankfully, the Blacksmith goes by his middle name)

I’ll close by sharing a short fiddle tune for all the dads. “Happy Jack” as performed by the Fiddler (in his summer haircut) at the Bethel, Missouri Fiddle Festival yesterday.

**blogger did not cooperate when I edited this post to add the Texture Tuesdays link - it removed the video, but you can view the Fiddler's performance here**

(By the way, if you have an aspiring young fiddler or guitarist, please read this link about the Bethel Youth Fiddle Camp here. I also found some great photos here of last year’s camp. The Fiddler attended this camp for as many years as possible, and taught at least one year there in the past. Highly recommended!Or, if you just enjoy fiddle music and are in the area, plan to attend the Bethel Fiddle Festival next year.)

Happy Fathers’ Day ~ Enjoy your day, Dads!
