    Great player in a great band. Sorry their festival agenda didn't happen, was so looking forward to seeing them again. Nice to see him get so broader notice.

    I got a copy of Cole's 1000 Fiddle tunes in about 1974. I'm a slow learner, more than a few to go:)

    Re: Finally Finished: Soliver #001

    Congratulations! While I know you've been working on this awhile, I'm still envious at the speed with which you got it done, ie, you kept after it. Not all of us do that:(
