Free FiddleVideo.com lesson – Cali’s Wedding

A little over a year ago my sweet friend and beloved member of our music community, Cali McKasson Kovin, passed away. I wrote a tune for Cali and her husband Chris on their wedding day and then recorded this lesson for FiddleVideo.com while Cali was still with us. We’ve just gotten around to editing it and wanted to share it with you as a free lesson. If you have a chance, check out Cali’s beautiful music with her brother Ryan McKasson and family at the Seattle Folklife Festival 2019.
