I took a group lesson with Steve at
Louisiana Heritage and Gifts when I
was in Louisiana over the holidays.
I think he is a great teacher. And I'm
an educator so I'm extremely critical
of how people teach.
He broke it down clearly..in chunks..could
put it back in context..checked to make sure
the students were getting it...it was all good.
and...Wilson does a good job in producing these videos
I had a glimpse of the Mitch Reed fiddle DVD
and that looks like its well done.
Hi Mark - Life is good. My new band, RedLine Zydeco played 2 dances this weekend (Ithaca and Rochester) to big satisfied crowds. I'm pretty close to picking a 3-row to add some more color and keys to the band. I'm looking forward to Steve Riley teaching at Augusta this year, not to mention his new DVD. I've been playing Cajun music with Betsy Fuller and some friends, but the zydeco thing is in the ascendancy at the moment. There's a blurb and a sound clip from our debut show at the link shown to the side of this message.
