Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit. He was a winner at the Winfield National Flatpicking Championship and the Rocky Mountain Championship on Mandolin.

Hey, I recognize that lefty! It was up against my lefty MK on *bay at the same time. If I remember you did get a nice deal on that mando! That case alone is $100 if you can find it. I got one at Elderly awhile back but the last time I checked they were on backorder. Enjoy...its a great trip you are on!
