Julianne Johnson on a Cigar Box Fiddle

Here's an old-time fiddle tune on the cigar box violin Jeff and I finished this weekend. You can see pictures of the fiddle and its construction in this album: http://www.cigarboxnation.com/photo/albums/cigar-box-fiddle-1 . It sure was a fun project!

Lovely tune and wonderful sound. (I'm into old-time and I've been binging on Ilana Katz lately.) It's great to hear another fine fiddler playing this type of music. And even better when it's being played so well - and on a even more "folksy" instrument. (FWIW I like the sound of that little box you’re playing better than a standard fiddle.)

Well done!
