Funky Fiddles is On-Line!


I am pleased to announce that Funky Fiddles, my first published work with Kendor Music, Inc., is now for sale on Kendor’s website!

Funky Fiddles is a level 1+ string orchestra piece in A Mixolydian mode that combines a groovy bass line with a fiddle style melody. I added optional drum set and amplified bass parts to really place the piece firmly in the “alternative styles” category.

The piece is for sale now on Kendor’s website, and from what I understand it will be featured in Kendor’s promotional mailing this spring.
