Brad, are they filming for NPR's "Tiny Desk Concert"? I hope so. Those are always outstanding.

That's my understanding, but I don't know when it will go up on their podcast. Bob Boilen does a great job with those. The David Rawlings and Gillian Welch is a favorite. Such nice sound off that one stereo mic.

Great job, Bradley, I love getting the tech (or anti-tech) details!

How touching that the previous message on this thread, from back in 2011 was from the late John McGann. I met John when he was just a wonder-kid playing with a band called Lost in the Shuffle in Boston, back in the '80s. Thanks to his presence on the Cafe, we reconnected a bit, to recall the days they'd rehearse in our apartment. That's when I learned that sitting in the middle with the players in a circle is the best way to listen to a bluegrass quintet.

Following some of the working links below his signature leads me to this video, with John and Matt Glaser and others playing with the wonder-kids of another generation. I don't want to be too heavy handed, but it's right here: Don't Put Off 'Til Tomorrow...

If they record again, I hope they mix it without the distortion. It was exciting at first listen, but now it's not pleasant to listen to for me.
