Original music with a Celtic sound, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, oldtime, Missouricana… Columbia, Missouri

I’m writing fiddle tunes. Here’s my friend Terry McKown having fun with one of my tunes, “Bluebells.”

ORIGINAL MISSOURICANA: check out Pippa & the Strawmen.

Every other Friday, 6-9pm at CoMoSmoke and Fire

BLUEGRASS JAM every Sunday afternoon, 1-4 pm at the Broadway Brewery: check out Gainor and Friends.

OLDTIME, check out Three Around Three

And sometimes I get to play THE BLUES (original North Mississippi hill country blues) at CoMo Smoke and Fire with Mr. Fletcher’s One Man Blues Band. Check him out on Facebook.

AND also… ORIGINAL FIDDLE TUNES…  What folks are saying about the latest album, FIDDLE TUNES FOR MY DAD:

“This is my favorite album of Pippa’s. Each tune is compelling and expressive–you know straight away what each one is saying, which is an uncommon and beautiful thing. The arrangements and performances are simple and spot on. Nothing gets in the way of the music. Pippa has a gift for creating tunes. They sound like classics already. Listen a few times and you’ll see what I mean.” Darry Dolezal (cellist)
