Hello, everyone!  My name is Chris Griffin, or just Griff works as well.  I'm in Columbus, Ohio.

I've been playing various wind instruments for about 30 years, but the growing urge to play fiddle boiled over at the Dublin Irish Fest this year, and I went in search of a teacher.  I've been playing for about three weeks now, and wishing I started a long time ago.  I stumbled across one of FM's videos while snooping about on YouTube, and that led me here.  What a fantastic site!

Welcome Griff. It's a great site.

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
