    Re: Don Williams

    Nice oval hole sound on that mandolin. Don's music was always a bit of sanity in a crazy world.

  5. Re: Jethro & Steve Goodman "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"

    He was a good one for sure. Saw him a couple of times and one time John Prine stopped in and and joined him on stage as he had just played a gig down the road. Jethro died young at 68. Oh my.
  6. Re: Was the mandolin played in traditional folk before Bill Monro

  8. Re: NMD Ellis A4 Deluxe with Hummingbird inlay.

    I'd wait a minimum of 6 months for the varnish to set up. Don't use polish until then either. Wipe off the with a soft cloth. Just enjoy it now and add that stuff later.
  9. Re: NMD Ellis A4 Deluxe with Hummingbird inlay.

    The beauty of Ellis' work speaks for itself. They are the best IMHO.

    Re: favorite festival tent?

    Back in the 80's to the mid 90's I had an L L Bean tent that was great. Haven't stayed in a tent in 20 years.

    Re: Do you name your instruments?

    I named one. It is red and I call it Red Barker. The name fits that mandolin nicely.
  14. Re: JUNE mandolins and guitars now in Virginia

    Good luck Walter, you sure picked a lovely place to move too. Not nearly as hot as Campobello.
  15. Re: What artist/album got you started with Trad?

    I started with blues, Josh White, Howlin' Wolf and simultaneously Frank Proffitt and Wade Ward on banjo.
  16. Re: Using cheaper mandolin for extensive practice.

    Why if I have great instruments do I want a cheap one? Makes no sense. I can't any of them with me.

    Re: Kentucky KM-1500 (Amazing Deal)

    I heard a wicked good sounding Kentucky the other week at a gig I played. I thought it was something other than Kentucky but when I saw it I was wrong, it sounded great.

    Re: Lakota mandolin straps

    I have a Lakota guitar strap. It does not stretch but it does shed. I'll find little bits of leather on my shoulder.

  22. Re: Feedbacks on my F Mandolin and complete gear :)

    I met Eddie Blevins and played several of his mandolins at a luthier gathering in Burnsville, NC two years ago this month. He is a fine fellow and his mandolins sounded real good. You got a dandy...
