Cello-fiddling frenzy

The fiddle performance went well, more or less. I forgot to bring a chair and did end up standing, which was more or less fine, but hard on the wrist, and harder to shift well.

We played for about an hour, the weather was great, and the crowds were smiling. Many more people smiled at me and my cello than had previously smiled at me and my fiddle, making me feel like I should play a spectacular solo. Maybe next time.

At the moment, I only know a few tunes. I really need to memorize more tunes and memorize at least some accompaniments to tunes, so I am not always guessing. But it was fun, and gives me the inspiration to practice these fiddle tunes and work on accompaniments more, a lot more.
