Okay, so all it needs is a little apple pie on the side to complete the Americana of it. Artistry, creativity, and a goodly amount of spunk in taking his idea and running with it…

Glenn Donnellan, a violinist for the National Symphony, created this backstage at the Kennedy Center, borrowing drills and tools from the stagehands working there.  Go enjoy, but forgive your dog if it howls along.

My Beagle didn’t even notice it! It’s a good thing I don’t rely on her for any type of guard-dog purposes. Happy 4th!

Gretchen cocked her head from side to side and then began to bark. Sissy just trotted over to see what was wrong…

Happy 4th!

So much fun!! I guess it indicates that all that sitting around backstage isn’t always a waste of time! Happy 4th to all.

Don’t have a dog to evaluate that. The “Star Spangled Banner” in bluegrass?

Maybe for an encore he should play Bat-tle Hymn of the Republic?

Great!!! I don’t have a dog to howl (sigh). Enjoyed the clip.

I loved this! Thanks. And the dog didn’t howl. He was probably ignoring it as another another curious thing his human companion was involved in.
