Kelly Wadsworth

I took up the fiddle at the age of 50.  I am a decent piano player and also play 4 string plectrum banjo with my jazz trombone playing husband so I thought…how hard can it be? 

 It was harder than I thought but with some help from OOTFA and some great new friends, I was able to learn some tunes and participate in the local jams.   

I sat in the back row of our local youth orchestra for 5 years so I could learn to read better.  I went to fiddle camps with my grandchildren. 

I twisted the arms of my guitar playin
g sons and they would help me practice.  Little by little, I began to improve and see progress in my playing.
