Now fiddle students can get a little bit of Annie's wisdom in her new book TRADITIONAL BLUEGRASS SOLOS.

The book features 46 solos from master fiddlers such as Curly Ray Cline, Chubby Wise, Kenny Baker, Mac Magaha, Vassar Clements, Bobby Hicks, Glen Duncan, James Price and many others.  It also includes  recordings of all of the solos, played slowly and up-to-speed, as well as helpful tips!

You can order the book right from Annie's website for just $30 and she'll cover the cost of shipping.

Annie began playing the fiddle when she was four, taking Suzuki lessons as well as learning fiddle tunes from her dad’s guitar picking. She grew up going to bluegrass and old-time music festivals in California.  She began playing gigs when she was twelve, and by the time she was in high school she’d joined a couple bands. Some of her previous bands are All Wrecked Up, Donner Mountain, Dark Hollow, and Lost Coast. Donner Mountain won several band competitions, including the 2006 Huck Finn Jubilee National Playoffs, 2005 Music on the Mountain Band Contest, and 2004 Bluegrass in the Foothills Emerging Artist Band Contest.

Over the past few years, she has also been teaching at a lot of music camps, including Nimblefingers, CBA Music Camp, Kaufman Kamp, and the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop.
