It was interesting

I took a look at Craigslist last week, as I do occasionally. I read the instrument sales, the musicians section and occasionally the personals, just to make me miss the Reader even more (not one as amusing as the least amusing personal ad I ever read in the Reader).

I see this ... "Fiddler looking for group". I have seen a couple of these here and there over the last few years, usually looking for a bluegrass or similarly old-timey sort of band.

The ad, in part, reads ... "I'm a fiddler, singer and songwriter. I've played pretty much everything a fiddle might fit in: Celtic, Klezmer, Modern Folk, Goth, Folk Metal, Punk Folk, Old-timey, Bluegrass, Classical."

Lizzie is on chat, I ask if I should email this person, knowing full well what the answer would be.

The fiddler responds in an hour or so, we talk back and forth a bit, she listens to some of the tracks on the website and says that she thinks she can add something to our music.

We got together last night, the first thing I notice is that she is wearing a con shirt. We establish that ... well ... we know a lot of the same people. She was on a songwriting panel with S00j at Arisia last year!

So yeah, a Geek Fiddler. She is, from what she said, on FB, but I haven't tracked her down yet, But anyway, welcome Susan, she'll be playing with us at the S00j house concert.
