A Musical Journey
This past weekend I journeyed down to Portland, Oregon with family to enjoy the River City Music Festival. Between attending workshops and listening to lots of bluegrass music from artists like Sierra Hull, the Bluegrass Regulators and Northern Departure, I had time to lament no longer being able to play my violin. I have never been skilled with the guitar, another instrument in my house, but at one point in my life, I was at least decent at the violin. Looking back now, and reading some of my adjudication reports, I am not sure how well I actually played. This doesn't matter now, though. This weekend has shown me that I need to get my fingers moving again. By the end of the year, I hope to feel comfortable playing my violin in front of people again. Off to go practice!
