    Re: What's The One That Got Away?

    Two mandos from one trip to Carter’s in 2017. No regrets, though, since both were way beyond my price range.

    They had two identical F5’s by Oliver Apitius. One was from 2016, and the other was...

    A pilgrimage to Nashville is fun for so many reasons! For an education about mandolins over $5K, it will be hard to beat Carter’s and Gruhn’s. You’ll get to play mandolins —- often more than one —-...

    He showed another facet of his virtuosity in this medley. He dialed back the speed and the volume and played appropriately gorgeous accompaniment to the vocals.

    My earliest memory of the magic was hearing Mike Seeger play with the New Lost City Ramblers, with the beauty and power of his high lonesome sound.
