OMG! You talk about gifted, this guy can do it all! Design 'em, make 'em, play 'em. But he comes from good stock... smart, capable folks that really understand wood. Couple that with the ability to craft an instrument into an art form and you come up with folks like Will.
Here's another really good story of gifted people overcoming constraints and finding their niche. Lucky us!!
Thoughtful, precise, sensitive, playful and raucous! Now there's a combination you don't see everyday.
As a musician (and human being), Erynn is all these things and so much more! Seems she knew early on - VERY early on - she was destined to play fiddle. When you hear her stories about her GREAT-grandparents playing fiddle, you can quickly see how her talent channels through her musical genes. But she's no slacker! Listen to her play! Whether it's an OT chestnut or a new number she composed, it's clear she's contributing to her family's admirable legacy. :)
If you're a player, he'll accompany you on the instrument of YOUR choice (he plays them all). If you're a singer, he'll make you sound amazing with counter rhythms, harmonies, melodies, etc. And if you want to hear original songs in the Old-time Tradition, he can write and record them. There's some of that, here. But this guy has lots to offer anyone. Much more than I can fit into less than a half-hour.
