Grand View

Proud of these fellers here – I layed this five part tune on em today and they picked it right up. One I wrote (49/90) for my Grandmother Renee. It's called "Grand View". Named after a place in southern central Tennessee. A beautiful overlook where the third, fourth, and fifth parts revealed themselves. Also very happy to welcome Pat Fiddle to the band.
