Ben Sanders and I recorded some videos with a really cool band.
Last year I got to know Ben Sanders, a great fiddler & multi-instrumentalist who moved to Austin from Nashville. It's been inspiring hanging out with a badass fiddler and jamming on tunes.
In order to generate some work for ourselves, but also (ok, mostly) to nerd out on twin fiddle parts, we put together a band with some great musicians from Austin and the surrounding area. We recorded videos at Fiddler's Green Music Shop with the help of Jake Sam. A bunch of friends came to be our audience and the result is some super fun performances.
I put together a playlist on Vimeo, which you can watch here: https://vimeo.com/channels/twinfiddles
