  1. Re: Any atheist / agnostic Bluegrasser's out there?

    I'm not here to have that discussion but if you'd like to find like minded folks why not take a trip over to Facebook and create a group. You'll find like minded folks. Since you're not looking to...
  2. Re: Any atheist / agnostic Bluegrasser's out there?

    Religion and politics are two of the easiest ways I know to shut down a thread on this board.

    Today I spent a delightful hour or so with Brian Farmer, owner of Sun Valley Guitars, our sorta-local MandolinCafe.com sponsor. At the end of our visit, I left my Eastman MD305 with him and walked...

    They're all amazing. Sierra's fantastic, and Sarah Jarosz is an underrated talent (playing an underrated instrument!), IMO. And Molly needs no introduction. Thanks for sharing!
