Last Friday, during the Bakery Boys usual gig at the Blue Ridge Bakery, eight or 10 members of the Asian Youth Orchestra stopped by for a bite. Mark Wingate held up his fiddle asking if there were any violinists in the group. It took a bit of good-natured cajoling, but first one, then another came over and played with them. The tunes played were - "Ashokan Farewell" and "You Are My Sunshine" (American), "Kesh Jig" (Irish), and "Scooter Wheel" (a contemporary fiddle tune composed by Mark).
