    Re: Unusual listening suggestions please

    Andrew Bird comes to mind. He plays the fiddle/violin. His new album is pretty modern. Check out his series on YouTube, Live from the Great Room.

    Re: Great new bluegrass CDs 2016

    I second, Town Mountain - Southern Crescent and Sam Bush - Storyman. The new Billy Strings EP is also great. The new Greensky Bluegrass album is also getting a lot of playtime in my house.

    Re: IBMA...good place to shop for a new mando?

    I agree. I got to play some great mandolins the year I went, but it was hard hearing them. I really enjoyed talking with all the builders too.

    Re: This just goes to show you...

    Rawlings playing those old Epiphone helped drive the prices up. Not really el cheapo anymore.

    Re: How have I not seen this?

    Thanks for posting. I happened to catch it live and looked for it shorty after to post here, but no luck. Andrews new album is pretty good, no mandolin however.

    Re: Newson F5's at Gruhn

    Greensky put Newson mandolins on my radar. I still have not had a chance to play one yet. But, it appears their prices have jumped up since I first heard about them.

    I'm set to see Greensky twice...
  8. Re: Who can honestly say "l'll never buy another mandolin"?

    I can say that. Unless I need to downgrade. Hopefully, this is never the case. I truly love my Ellis.

    I've got both the Sam and Alan and Grisman album. Both are great. I agree the Grisman and Garcia album is probably one of the best sounding records I've heard. This past week I got a great copy of...

    Re: Ones you wish you bought.

    There was a Givens A5 at the IBMAs about two years ago. That thing sounded great even with all the background noise. That same year there was Nugget A I couldn't put down, but the Givens had it beat.

    No such luck as far as instruments go, but I found a signed Bill Monroe lp for $7. The store manager seemed dismayed that he missed it, but he sold it to me for $7 as marked. Now if I would have put...
