Thanks @damfino. 🙂

We were outdoors again yesterday; in Morpeth, so I had to play the Rant again. The first tune is the Gilsland Hornpipe.

Just lovely @Jim Dunleavy! And thanks so much for letting me some of your countryside! I don't expect that I'll ever see it in person and this is the next best thing!

@Jim Dunleavy How wonderful.  And as always a big shout out to your photographer.  I loved watching you and seeing the countryside.  Excellent video.  The Travels with the violin continue to be rewarding and beautiful.

Thank you!!!

Thanks for the comments all. 🙂

@damfino - We have plenty of scars from defunct industrial activity - I'm only showing you the good bits. 😉

There are plenty good bits to show though! tongue

@Jim Dunleavy I just listened to your kitchen songs, and must say they are wonderful. There are definitely a few I will have to work on, very nice!

Thanks guys. 🙂

I'm getting ready to say goodbye to the Traveler now. I've signed her and added my souvenirs to the ziplock bag; I've given the Angel of the North badge pride of place inside the case.

I'll pack her up tomorrow and take her to the post depot on Thursday. Might have a little tune before that though.

So the Traveler is once again Traveling!

She is now en-route to Hampshire on the south coast of England, where her next host @Worldfiddler is anxiously waiting!

I hope hosting her brings you as much pleasure as it did me, Jim. 🙂

Thanks everyone. 🙂

I have a slight case of post-traveler blues, but am getting used to playing my own fiddle again! While I had the traveller I did all my practice on it so I would be used to it for making the videos and it's quite a change. lol

Great list, Pierre @Fiddlerman . You missed, however, the first person to receive the Traveler... @ftufc.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Looks like Fifi La Fume was also missed; she's the one who had it before I did.
