Old Time Music – All in the family

fiddleses
It seems that we have a family tradition, it is old time music. Donald’s mother remembers her own grandfather playing fiddle tunes. My son is lucky enough to own the fiddle he played them on.
Little did we know that so many years ago that old time music would bring so many different parts of our family together and provide a common language across the generations. A little Irish, a little Appalachian, a little gospel, and a little northwest can describe this kind of music – mostly instrumental, with a few songs thrown in. This painting shows cousins and a grand-daughter; they know the same tunes.

    Very cute.

    I was hoping to see your little family — say playing Happy Birthday to their grandmother!

      Your only error here is assuming I have a little family – my family spans the continents 🙂

    What a sweet tradition, to share musical talents, and then have a portrait of the folks who shared! Simply divine, Mimi!
