Gabe Witcher is one of the best fiddle players here in LA. And I would go so far as to say the most versatile. He's done everything from play fiddle with Willie Nelson to play bass with Eve6. Phenomenal musician, can literally play anything and sight reads like a mo'fo'. I don't think he'd be up for joining a group though. But for session work he is the best.

I have his number, if you want it just give me a buzz.

Hope this isn't coming in too late!

I'm not as current on the LA scene as I used to be, but two extremely good and versatile fiddlers down your are Brantley Kearns (LA) and Phil Salazar (Ventura).

I don't have current email addresses, but they should be easy enough to track down...

Good luck!

OK, here are a few links. Good luck!

Brantley:

Phil:

http://www.americanriverfolk.org/ins.../phil-salazar/

BTW, if you just need a fiddle part, contact Byron Berline. I'm pretty sure he's still doing some remote studio work in his "semi-retirement":

I mean ideally... we want someone to join the group with us.
