    Re: Titi Robin playing bouzouki Youtube

    Here is a video of the great collaboration between Titi Robin and Faiz Ali Faiz which I hadn't seen before. I was lucky enough to see this line-up in Glasgow in 2012, but I have to say this...
  4. Re: Going out of the country...personal item/carry-on?

    I always travel with a mandolin as a carry-on, and if necessary check whatever else I'm travelling with. I virtually never fly without a mandolin.
    I have never once had any questions asked about it....

    Re: cretan mandolin

    Giorgis Xylouris on lauto and Zacharias Spyridakis on lyra. They seem to be in the workshop of Stelios Petrakis (who briefly appears). These guys are actually pretty big names in Cretan music.

    Re: cretan mandolin

    Re: Natural talent vs practice

    In my experience being with or around other people who are motivated can be very productive.

    That's a really great line-up Paul. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. If I didn't have other things on I might even go to it myself.

    Good to hear that you seem to be doing well.

    I seem to vaguely...

    Re: Instrument swap?

    Having said all that, we once swapped houses with a family in France for three weeks.

  19. Re: Wanting to try a cittern (esp. Nordwall) in California/West C

    Hi Patrick,
    I remember the thread about Nordwall building your cittern and I have wondered how that worked out. Pretty well, by the sound of it.

  24. Re: Was the mandolin played in traditional folk before Bill Monro

    Bill's earliest recordings seem to be about 1937, so most of the folk music local people would play in their own areas before then would not have been documented much and probably never recorded.
