Our local treasure.  It has been my pleasure to collaborate with the Brick Store Museum for many years.

A fiddle orchestra and more, presided over by the inimitable Don Roy. When he's not playing beautifully on his fiddle, Don's patience and dedication shine through at every rehearsal and performance. My husband Bill and I are delighted to be members of this terrific group of musicians.

My newest guitar, and what a honey. These guys make GREAT instruments.

Nechville Musical Products

I bought a Nechville banjo while at MerleFest 2009, and am so pleased with it. It's a little sophisticated and technologically innovative for a down-homey girl like me, but man, does it sound and feel great. With a radiused neck, a slotted headstock, and a tunneled fifth string, I'm feeling pretty new-wave with this baby. Thanks to all the folks at Nechville for their terrific instrument.
