Acoustic Disc

San Rafael, Calif. — Acoustic Disc and the Mandolin Cafe are combining efforts and giving away 25 CDs from the Acoustic Disc catalog during November.

Registration for an opportunity to win a CD will commence November 1, 2011 and conclude on November 10 on the Mandolin Cafe web site. 25 individual winners will be selected at random and receive one of five recordings they will have the opportunity to indicate their interest in winning during the registration process:

David Grisman Quintet 25th Anniversary
David Grisman Trio Folkjazz
David Grisman Plays Big Mon
David Grisman Quintet Live at Jazz Alley
David Grisman & Martin Taylor

Registration will be open to all Mandolin Cafe visitors and no purchase is necessary to be eligible to enter.

Founded in 1990 by mandolinist, composer, bandleader and producer extraordinaire David Grisman, Acoustic Disc is an independent record label dedicated to the preservation and integrity of acoustic music, musicians and instruments. Varied releases cover acoustic music of all genres — be it David's own award-winning dawg music, bluegrass, classical, latin, jazz or folk.

Some of today's premier acoustic musicians have recorded for Acoustic Disc: Tony Rice ("Tone Poems"), Martin Taylor ("I'm Beginning To See The Light," "Tone Poems II"), Doc Watson ("Doc & Dawg"), Andy Statman ("Songs of Our Fathers"), Enrique Coria ("Solos From South America," "Latin Touch"), John Hartford ("Retrograss"), Ricky Skaggs ("Bluegrass Mandolin Extravaganza"), Bob Brozman ("Tone Poems III") and Denny Zeitlin ("New River").

The late Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead (who gave David the nickname Dawg) often recorded at Dawg Studios and chose Acoustic Disc as the outlet for his acoustic side, resulting in the acclaimed "Garcia/Grisman," "Not For Kids Only," "Shady Grove," "So What," "Old & In the Way," "That High Lonesome Sound" and "The Pizza Tapes" — with more yet to come.

To date, David has put his creative touch on over 60 remarkable and different productions for his thriving little label — five of which have been nominated for Grammys. Acoustic Disc releases have received critical acclaim from "Stereophile," "The Wall Street Journal," "People" magazine, "Rolling Stone," "Mojo" and many others.

"When people ask me what type of music we put out at Acoustic Disc," said top dawg David Grisman, "I tell them that in my humble opinion, we put out the very best acoustic music there is."

Just to clarify...

Is it:

25 people get 25 CDs

or

25 people get 1 CD?

Either way... :-)

"Acoustic Disc and the Mandolin Cafe are combining efforts and giving away 25 CDs"

Are you giving away CDs (i.e. compact discs) or downloads? I've been wanting to buy that Grisman plays Monroe album but can't find it as CD anywhere...

I just notified the winners in the Acoustic Disc CD Giveaway. Here they are with the last names abbreviated (although some you'll likely guess). If your name appears there best check your email for instructions on how to get your CD delivered. Oh, and just because your name matches one of these doesn't necessarily mean you won, unless your email address matches as well--because I know someone will point that out eventually.

Also, a big thanks to the top Dawg and his sidekick assistant Craig Miller for their support of the giveaway and for all of the really cool music they've brought and are yet to bring to the world.

Hi Steve,

I see there is a 'Ron M' listed, but am presuming it's another Ron M, as I didn't get an email either! Ah well, them's the breaks....
