Basic Information

About Jacqke
Biography:
My mother named me Jack, which was good, because I am a jack-of-all-trades. I know little about mandolins other than what the good folks on this site have been kind enough to talk about, and luckily they are generous. If you encounter me online, most likely it will be in context of the Wikipedia articles I write. Those articles reflect my quest to learn more about the world, combined with my sense of dismay that a perfectly good subject is not online yet. My Wikipedia user page with connections to my mandolin-related material is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Jacqke
Location:
Gillette, Wyoming, USA
Interests:
Mandolin luthiery, Bluegrass music, music/instrumental history
