So you think you'd like to run a mandolin forum?

by Scott Tichenor on Apr-13-2014 at 12:35pm
This amusing exchange between someone that has apparently visited this site a few times just occurred today. For those of you that are just sure you'd like to own a big mandolin forum, what more would you like to do on a Sunday? Something like this happens more often than you'd think. User's name and email addresses have been removed to protect their anonymity.

User: How do I change my pass word or delete my account? Can’t find it anywhere on the web site.

Dear Southwest Airlines. About That Guitar...

Flight 614 out of Kansas City, MO to Nashville arriving 11:10 a.m. this past Monday. I'm seated behind the wing with a direct view of the baggage/luggage being unloaded. My friend Glenn Bradford and I have arrived in Nashville for a couple of days of vintage

A quick update on the status of the Mandolin Cafe ball caps we offer from time to time. We'd been telling people January, 2014 but missed the deadline and then some.

First, we decided to move on from our previous supplier for reasons that don't need to be discussed. That meant a new stitching template from scratch and locating a new source of raw product (hats). We were looking for better quality, more appropriate size (there were issues with the last 2013 batch running small), and

Mandolin News that didn't make the Cafe home page

by Scott Tichenor on Feb-07-2014 at 11:38am
Some news or information just doesn't hit the Cafe home page and of late there's been a fair amount worth sharing. With a hot cup of java in hand and the current temperature 8 degrees, here's our shot on a Friday that might interest you:

If you're on Twitter you may have noticed someone promoting the hell out of Avi Avital's Between Worlds. How many of these promoted tweets have we seen? More than we can count. Assume Deutsche Grammophon is funding this (we'll watch more closely

Is 2014 The Year of the Mandolin in Classical Music?

by Scott Tichenor on Jan-01-2014 at 1:23pm
We howled with approval when UK-based author, novelist, broadcaster, cultural commentator Norman Lebrecht observed on his popular blog that 2014 could be The Year of the Mandolin in classical music.

inline imageHe might be onto something, and he's clearly no stranger to the instrument.

"Classical music needs new voices. In 2014, the big noise could well be the mandolin," he wrote, posting
