    Re: St Anne never sounded this good!

    I was lucky enough to catch this - it was a Joe Walsh mando workshop at at Joe Val Festival, maybe in 2009 or 10? Wonderful performance, and Joe just kept inviting friends up to play. Very generous...
  2. Re: Sierra Hull's Weighted Mind is streaming on NPR Music

    I am enjoying it! Her skill really stands out as she plays basically solo. A great step forward for her.
  3. Re: Where to move to in US? (Yes, there's mandolin content!)

    If cheap rent ain't the biggest part of your equation, than NYC can give you nightly jams and is increasingly good for (urban) bike riding. The best place I've lived for accessible bluegrass jams...

    To take this thread back to a more prosaic, mandolin-centric, focus (though I'm loving the suggestions here), I can't get enough of Joe Walsh's (the mando player, not that guy) new album - Sweet...

    Re: Great new Pick

    I've been playing with a 1.7 for the last two weeks. I'm really liking it! Very smooth, no catching on the strings = easy tremolo. Nice thick tone. The 2.2 was a little thick for me when I just...
  8. Re: Adam Steffey coming to Rogers, Ark July 23rd, 2011

    5 days after I move to town? Great! I'll officially call this my welcome-back-to-Arkansas show. That is, if I can find my car keys among the boxes.

    Re: Ellis v. Gilchrist Oval Holes?

    The Model 1 I played at Gruhn's is probably my favorite mando I've every played. I haven't played it, but I've heard an Ellis oval, and it was great as well. I think, though, I'd rather have the...

    Check out The Flatlanders - More a Legend Than a Band for a great use of the saw in country music. Though I must admit that I wouldn't have minded them letting the saw player (sawyer?) have one or...
