Twice as Nice!

While watching the Oak Bay Tea Party parade I suddenly became aware of some familiar sounding fiddle playing. Sure enough, the next float to come into view was bearing Sarah Tradewell, who performs regularly down on the Inner Harbour Causeway and was featured last year on this blog. Below is a recent video of Sarah playing two of her original compositions. Enjoy!

See and hear more of Sarah on her MySpace page:

Hi Benjamin,
Not sure if you remember me, but I'm the writer who you helped connect to Sarah Tradewell because she looks like the character in my forthcoming novel, Restoring Harmony (about a fiddler). Anyway, she told me about the pic and I love it! I've written about it and linked to it on my website today.

Great pic!

Captivating photograph of a beautiful and talented young lady!

Great photo! She has a gorgeous violin! Can she play "Orange blossom special?!" Fun picture on the parade float! Encore!

Joelle, of course I remember Mrs. Snapper. I'm glad you like the photo and thanks for the link. Congratulations on your imminent publication. You must be excited. I'll keep an eye out for Restoring Harmony - my two granddaughters are avid readers.

Jacob and Leif, thanks for your kind words. Leif, if it can be played on a fiddle I'm sure that Sarah can play it.
