  9. Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    Anybody going to Alan's camp this year? Who has been in the past? I live in town, so it seems like a no brainer. Would love to hear more from those that have been.

    Re: Charleston SC Bluegrass Festival 2020

    Not surprised, looks like this has been postponed until March 2021. I am surprised they waited so long.

  15. Re: Can anyone please share some thoughts on the Eastman MD515CC?

    PS - How's the mando scene in CR? I lived in Mexico for awhile which is where I originally picked up the mando, wasn't a lot of local interest. Finally found a group of ex-pats to jam with. What kind...
