Gabe says, “I have been playing the classical cello since I was five, but 12 years ago myGabe Schliffer world changed forever when I was introduced to Old-time, Country and Bluegrass. When one day my cello suddenly broke, I was desperate to find an instrument that I could use. Luckily my roommate had a fiddle laying around, and after failing to play it in the usual way, I thought perhaps if I held it like a mini-cello that it might just work. Lo and behold, it was like magic! All I had to do was adjust my fingers to the right size, and my bow arm did the rest. Suddenly the world of fiddle and old-time music was open wide, and what an amazing journey it has been! “ On the windy ridges of Oregon grow tall trees with sweeping branches and enormous cones – the largest species of pine in the world, the Sugar Pine.
