because I didn’t have enough excuse to contemplate getting back in front of a piano.

Fun and amusement at fiddle fest.

I’ve written a couple entries referencing the anual fiddle festival held up at Pembroke’s Riverside park every September around labour day.

If you have not heard Donna the Buffalo, you are broken.
