Randy Elmore Fiddle Camp
Cisco Junior College,
July 7-13, 2008
Emilie and I went to Randy Elmore's Fiddle Camp this summer and had a blast. I attended the guitar classes and Emilie was in the advanced fiddle class for 18 year olds and younger.
At the left is my roomate for the week, Tom, who also attended the camp with his daughters (below left). At the right is a picture of Emilie's roomates, Mia and Katy. Below on the right are our friends Loretta and her dad Salvator who kept me snapping my fingers all week. Here's a clip from the last night's concert with Loretta singing and playing the fiddle, and Emilie also playing a fiddle solo JAMBALAYA

At the left is a picture of my guitar class. Standing next to me is one of the instructors, Dick Gimble. Left to our own devices from 4PM until "supper time," we had time to explore and try not to get into trouble. We were warned about the rattlesnakes and this little critter...

Each year Randy and Deborah Elmore give out scholarships to students to return next year. This year, Emilie was awarded one of those scholarships and here's the clip of her getting the award during the last night's concert.

The teachers at the camp were all great musicians. At the left is a picture of me with Dale Morris who is Emilie's fiddle teacher and my guitar teacher, and also one of the teaching staff at the camp. At the right is Emilie with Randy Elmore.
