Notes from my back porch...
I love fiddle music.  Especially when accompanied by piano and other
instruments in a contra dance.  I play the violin myself (a little), and my son
does too, and I'm hoping someday we'll both learn to play that irresistible
contra dance music.  This week our feature story is about a New Hampshire
couple who have devoted their lives to, well, fiddling around.  
Read their story,  Tale of Two Fiddles, here...
