Alan Oresky is a very talented fiddler and mandolin player. He not only took the fiddle lead in playing Old-Time music, but also worked to integrate the other musicians so that our string band produced a great sound. Our audience was very appreciative and impressed with the fiddle solo pieces he played for us including Jerusalem Ridge, a difficult but beautiful bluegrass instrumental tune. Alan was the key musician that made our concert a success. Depending on the tune, Alan appropriately chose to play either the fiddle or the mandolin to best accompany the band. Alan's friendly personality and guidance was a great asset to the band. We hope to work with him again.
