Boy, could he make that violin sing!
Violinist Johnny Neil gave us an outstanding show on Friday night at our "Wine, Cheese, and Music" event. Trained as a classical violinist, Johnny is equally proficient in classical music and good ole cowboy foot-stompin tunes. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the violin and it's history. What was scheduled as a one hour performance turned into an hour and a half....and nobody was ready to go home even then. Johnny's fingers lightly danced along the strings as he created music that ranged from selections that made you dreamy to sad to full of joy. He has had an amazing career, from playing with symphonies, to western bands, to appearing in movies. If you missed this event, you really missed something special!
