Erin Slaver, formerly of Liberty, will be playing backup violin tonight for Rascal Flatts at the Country Music Association Awards, and will be part of the house band playing a tribute to Glenn Campbell!
Erin, who started Suzuki violin lessons at age 4, has grown up performing throughout the area with her father, John Slaver, whom many of you know as an accomplished guitarist as well.
As Erin was growing up, the father and daughter act were regular hits on the Bethel Woods Harvest Festival stage, at the Historic Eddy Farm Inn and Sports Resort as well as numerous other area hotels and venues.
After graduating Stony Brook, Erin was making it big in the NYC circuit, playing the Bitter End and elsewhere this winter. But she decided just weeks ago to pack it up and move to Nashville – where it appears she belongs.

2011 Hardy Bros. Cup Champions August 7,2011
at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum.
The first Hardy Bros. Cup bamboo rod casting competition was held on August 6 & 7, 2011 at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum. This unique competition was designed to encourage everyone with a bamboo rod to participate. Casters were required to use a bamboo fly rod 9′ in length or less, with their own fly reel with a floating fly line, and a 7’6″ leader. A sight fly was provided. Fly rods 7’11” and under were given advantage handicaps for length. Casters were allowed up to 6 practice casts before delivering 2 distance casts and one accuracy cast to be counted as points.
This first competition was attended by both recognized professional and amateur bamboo rodmakers and the casual bamboo fly rod users. This diverse competition brought out young and old from 8 to 80, those from distant countries, and highly recognized individuals including Joan Wulff, Per Brandin, Mke Canazon, Tim Abbott among many others.
First Prize in the maiden Hardy Bros. Cup received the first 100th year commemorative C.C. France custom fly rod by Hardy Master Rodmakers Tom Moran and Callum Gladstone, and their name engraved in the perpetual Hardy Cup, made by Tiffany, and on display at the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum. Second and third place finishers were presented with Hardy fly reels, and all casters received an ICast Button (to get it, you had to cast it).
Taking the honors this year were:
First Place- Masaki Takemoto, Japan
Second Place – Jin Woo Lee, Canada
Third Place- Mike McFarland, USA
The Annual Hardy Bros. Cup casting competition was a joint co-operative between Hardy/Greys North America and The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum. As desired, this brought out a large audience reaching all levels and corners of the world. August 2012 dates to follow.
