The American Fiddler
“The American Fiddler” is a project that has been years in the making! Since the release of my first album, “Ride”, in 2003, my desire has been to continually grow as a musician and a composer. From a kid growing up in Middle Tennessee competing in contests to stages all over the world with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, every experience and every musician I’ve met along the way has taught me something that I could incorporate into my own playing, composing and arranging. I’ve always loved the history of American fiddle music and what it represents. It’s not just one style – it’s the blending of Scottish, Irish, Appalachian, and even classical elements. My hope is that this album honors those influences and embodies all of the diverse elements that come together to make up “The American Fiddler”.
