WBBM profiles our own Paul Wargaski

WBBM radio had a nice piece on our own Paul Wargaski today. They took a tour of his studio, and spoke with Paul about his craft:

Honestly, I’m a young violin maker,’ he said, ‘or young for a violin maker.’

Wargaski says he learns something with every violin “ or viola or cello or double bass“ he makes.

‘Learn stuff, forget stuff,’ he said.

Draggin’ the Bow with Tangleweed and Shotgun Party

By Kenneth Rainey. Filed under: TweedBlog, video. Tags: ,

This is the second of our encores with our friends in Shotgun Party at the Old Town School last month. We each play the raggy fiddle tune “Draggin’ the Bow”, but we each do it it slightly different ways. This loose rendition attempts to merge the two.

All Night Long, with Tangleweed and Shotgun Party

This is the first of two encore tunes Tangleweed played with Shotgun Party at the Old Town School of Folk Music, the old time chestnut ‘All Night Long’, with some goofy instrument thrown in the mix. Quality entertainment.
