|Baxter Barret Brown is back and this time he decides to take his big bass fiddle to a ranch and play music with some real cowboys. As the story unfolds, readers will delight each time Baxter's big bass fiddle is used to help the cowboys on the ranch!
Music educators, parents as well as children will appreciate and enjoy reading aloud this story, full of alliteration, about an untouted but essential musical instrument, the bones of any orchestra—or chamber string quartet or country-western group.
An age-old story of the deep bond between musicians and their instruments, this charming story is enhanced by the vivacious watercolors of Elaine Atkinson—and a CD with the author reading, and five new "Bass Fiddle Tunes" that go along with the story.
Playing bass with the Texas-based acoustic trio Blue Prairie, TIM MCKENZIE has opened for such artists as Asleep At The Wheel, Michael Martin Murphy and Jerry Jeff Walker. Tim's first book, Baxter Barret Brown's Bass Fiddle was published in 2004.
