  1. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Many of the other music shows mentioned are long distant memories - or recently ended, like Marty Stuart's show. Still wonderful to sample those oldies - even when the performers were singing along...
  2. Re: Lehigh Valley, PA - Jams and Clubs for the BG, OT etc newcome

    I'm not going to be able to catch the 'shindig' this weekend, but I definitely will check it out soon.

    By the way Cafe peeps, my wife and I will be looking for a place in or near Bethlehem, PA to...
  3. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    I was discussing Live From Here with a knowledgable show producer the other day, and the first thing she says to me is, 'I love how generous Chris Thile is toward his guests and his band', and I...
  4. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Agree! Aoife did a wonderful job with Joni’s songs.
  5. Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Through an odd series of events, I helped the Cafe break the story that Thile was going to take over as host of Prairie Home Companion. I was excited, but I'd be lying if claimed to have realized...
  6. Re: Lehigh Valley, PA - Jams and Clubs for the BG, OT etc newcome

    Well that'll do! It looks like a really great venue, not unlike Jalopy here in Brooklyn. Thanks!

    Re: Chris Thile's first mandolin

    In an interview with Grisman (Fretboard Journal), Thile says of his first mandolin, "I had a Sylvia. It was made by Kay."
  8. Lehigh Valley, PA - Jams and Clubs for the BG, OT etc newcomer

    I did a quick search of the Cafe, and I don't see anything on this region of Pennsylvania in the last few years. Any jams, gatherings, or music venues that are of special interest to a mandolin and...

    Re: The end of my playing days.

    Here's an update from Ivan's friend in the UK, Ian Sharp. A photo of the newly planted memorial tree.
    The story is in the link below. I feel better posting a hopeful image to supplant the one of the...

    Re: The end of my playing days.

    I don't know if THIS story from the UK has been posted already - forgive me if it has. A touching gesture directed toward the memory of a musical friend.

    Re: Sarah Jarosz playing a Nugget Mandolin

    Listened again with headphones. A couple notes - Sarah has the Nugget plugged in - while Thile is using that clip-on mic he favors. And Mike Elizondo's bass work is sweet. He's also music director of...

    Re: Sarah Jarosz playing a Nugget Mandolin

    That's a great performance of the Book of Right On. I remember how Joanna Newsom's harp based music killed me when I first heard it. I should revisit her work.

    Sarah had just acquired her Nugget...

    "Some might question the wisdom of basing an entire business around a single instrument such as a mandolin, but for Vance, the decision was easy."

    One might say the same for the author, just...

    Re: Sennheiser ME64 + K6 powering module

    The older (very similar) Sennheiser modular system in the 1990s was built around the K3U power supply - which takes a 6v camera battery but also can run off phantom power. I have some older ones that...
  15. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I think it's fair to say that KB and Co. value 'story line' over comprehensiveness. They are trying very hard to prune the complexities of the world into a comprehensible story. Not the ONLY story....
  16. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Sharon Gilchrist - but as luck would have it, hers has a torch inlay and no name on the headstock!
  17. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    And since she's playing a Taylor guitar, she didn't need to spend a dime to have her name inlayed into the fingerboard and headstock unlike Jimmie Rodgers! ;-)
  18. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    My impression is that there are at least two types of patrons in the museum world. The philanthropist who can pay market rate for the items that museums want to have, and donate them. And the...
  19. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    Ha! Here we go. Number four. At the opening of tonight's show. Marty Stuart speaking of Marty Robbins.

  20. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    I thought Eddie Arnold was #4, but when I look again, I think he's playing a 00 12-fret. Two more episodes to go though... ;-)
  21. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    Also a surprising number of the tiny Martin 5-18 guitar. I expected to see exactly ONE, but there's been four performers seen with them so far, I think.

    Re: Is my top caving in?

    It looks as if one of the posts that hold the saddle is bent or tilted in the base??
  23. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    Thanks for the info, Tom. I'll add it to the photo's caption on FB. The way the internet works, photos move around much faster than accurate information that needs to stay with them!
  24. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    So many Fender acoustics! I suspect they had a look and comfort level, and maybe did not put out too much sound which could be an advantage when an off-camera band is providing most of the music?
  25. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Personally, I think that the pacing, the writing, the narration, are all part of the Florentine Films style (Burns' production company) - he's going to stick with it whether you like it or not. So we...
