Mandoln Quartet House Concert
At the last minute I found about a house concert by Steve Mullins' New Mandolin Quartet in Hygene CO. The quartet consisting of two mandolins, a mandola and a '24 Gibson Mandocello (no significant signatures).
Never heard anything like the quartet in my life. They played a bunch of Christmas and other tunes in well rehearsed arrangements. The mandola and mandocello were completely fascinating. The mandocello had an amazing amount of bass. I've never seen one close up, it was huge. It was amazing to hear the 4 parts (the two mandos were usually in harmony). Some of the songs sounded as though they were from a different time. Alas, they only play once a year.
