Edward Howe
Music is my passion and I am living the dream of creating happiness through sound and movement.  My wife and I have created Sound of Perfection.  Through our company I am honored to play the  fiddle, assist with your event, radio or television production as  sound engineer, create a pro-audio package for your venue and install the system.  Dance to some tunes, whether by my fiddle-hands or through my sound system, or sit back and relax for a concert.
