Father & Son


This is our recording, “Father & Son”. Julian Meyer inspired his son Aaron to play the violin at age 5 all because of a fancy violin cake and an opportunity to solo with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Aaron soloed with the Philly Orch on February 4, 1984 at age 11. Thomas M. Ellis V listened to his father, Tim Ellis (Thomas IV) play guitar in his early years, and at age 10 followed in his father’s footsteps and under his tutelage. Dean Baskerville recorded and mixed this music with the help of his son, Cassidy. We are all inspired…
