Saw Michelle Nixon and Drive in Toronto On Sunday 18th, my first real bluegrass concert, we don't get that many up here. I'm still so stoked that words almost fail me. They had the whole room in the palms of their hands within the first number. Oh yeah, the mandoln content. Jamie Harper was their mandolin player, man oh man can this guy cook! Managed to sneak up on stage during intermission and have a peak at his mando, he'd left it up there. Plays a The Gibson Master Model, truss rod cover looked like MOP with his name engraved on it, tailpiece was cast with string hooks in a v-shape so whatever that make is, nice abrasion cavity developing where he plants. That's about all the time I had up there, didn't want to make anyone nervous. Anyway, fantastic band, strongly recommend you see them whenever you can.
