      Just a quick word about Michael. Those of you that have been around the Cafe a long time may remember some of his early recordings. I hadn't heard from him in years but this one dropped out of the sky and I have to say, he hasn't lost his remarkable touch. This is what I really love about running the Mandolin Cafe, that someone can take the instrument we all know and understand and do something totally remarkable and surprising with it. This is a Kevin Schwab electric mandolin he's playing. Great tone and note choices.

      Also, Michael is an artist and this is some of his work on the album cover. Much more of his art at the Sojourner Records web site.

      Hi,

      Yes, nice to hear from Michael again. I bought his first two recordings on the same label and the second one was dated 2004, so itís been a long time.

      Regards,
