Sitting in the Window

Story

When my wife Chrysandra worked in Washington, DC, we lived across the Potomac in Alexandria, Virginia. During the summer months while she was working I would play my fiddle all day. I wish I had that same energy now! The tune that I play on this track came together out of nowhere. I worked on it on and off for years and finally gave up on it. Not having a recording device the day I finished it (or was trying to), I phoned my good friend Laurel Martin and asked her if she would record it as I played it over the phone. Thanks to Laurel, the tune surfaced again and survives in this form.
