Freja is soon coming home again

My daughter Freja has had a great year at ETSU. It was tough in the beginning, but she has slowly learned how things are organised at a University. The other day she found a clip of herself on Youtube. First week she arrived at the school, she had the chance to sing one song with the schools Bluegrass Band at a show in Kingsport. We didn't think we would have a chance to see that, but someone had filmed it and it showed up on Youtube. The school has a great band as you can see. Here is the… Continue

Freja met the man - Tony Rice

Here is an update on my daughter at ETSU. She went with friends from school down to IBMA in Nashville. She gets to do all the fun things I would have wanted to do.

Most of the time I jam at night with my oldest daughter. But now she is off. She has started studies at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City. She is studying at their Bluegrass program, so we are very excited about that. It is a great chance for her. I uploaded som pictures of guitarpickers that she has met sofar after she arrived. It is a big step to travel so far away when you are 18, but she has been doing great sofar.

ETSU… Continue
