We'll miss you, Julian!

We want to say a fond farewell (for now) and send many "Best Wishes!" to our fiddle player, Julian Pinelli, who is getting ready to head off to Berkeley College of Music in Boston. 

He's an 18 year old wunderkind -- a hell of a fiddle player -- and awesome guy!  As John says, "He's an animal."  (in a good way, obvs)

We started playing with him about two years ago -- and we invited him to play with us at MerleFest this past April -- he has added so much dimension to what we do on stage.

We can only imagine how amazing he's going to be after attending Berkeley -- he's already such a fantastic musician as it is.

On behalf of the band, it's been a pleasure and an honor to play with you, friend. Best of luck at college and look forward to picking with you again SOON!

Here's one of Julian's last performances with us when we played the Grey Eagle a couple of weeks ago.  He CRUSHED it.  

Have a great freshman year!!
