My Other Workhorse

My other workhorse is this beat up, unimpressive, fiddle. I have had it for years, a Silver Creek Acoustic/Electric. I just wiped it down with a piece of lanolin-heavy wool to dust off the cobwebs from a week without playing. I sawed out some scales and a few tunes. I am not an amazing musician, but to be able to stop the cold, rainy, work outside and play a light Irish jig inside by the fire before writing/design is a treat. It lightens my heart. The songs change the color of the day. Add a splash of coffee, even better.
