  1. Re: Article: New Music from Gregg Daigle and Don Grieser - Palata

    Re: Mandolin Close Ups

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

    Joe, you can stream the audio of the shows at livefromhere.org -- they might be all archived there. You don't have to listen on the radio.

  8. Re: Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    The show video is no longer available, but they were nice enough to put the Joni Mitchell birthday segment on youtube. At least skip to "A Case of You" as the last song. Knocks me out. Powerful.

    Incredible show tonight!! The Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays segment blew me away--Aoife especially, but the whole band just nailed everything about those songs.
  14. Live From Here Joni Mitchell musicians' birthdays

    The whole musicians' birthday segment featured Joni Mitchell songs. Aoife O'Donovan really nailed a couple songs. Skip to the middle of the video if you watch nothing else. Unbelievable renditions....

    Which Duff F5? They have several there. Don't see a Duff A5 on their site. Is it a new or used one?
