Kick start your day with a good breakfast

This morning, as I was baking sour cream corn muffins, I was listening to Performance Today on WQXR, our local classical music station. In one of those wonderful moments of synchronicity, a modern composition called “Fiddler’s Galaxy” by North Carolinian Kenneth Frazelle came on.

Frazelle fell in love with the Appalachian fiddlers of Galax, Virginia and wrote the piece inspired by their unique style of playing. If you follow the “Fiddler’s Galaxy” link above, you can sample “Breakdowns.” Just try not to smile while you’re listening to that! Thank you, Southern talents and tastes, for a great start to a beautiful fall day.
