    That is Lowell Bailey and that sure was a nice shot of him playing Mandolin for his family.

    Yeah, I noticed it too! He was playing some kind of F5 model, but it went by too fast for me to tell if the name was visible.

    Saw the same thing and as I’m yelling F5, F5... my Dad says... nice John Deere. LOL told him I’d rather take the F5, still not knowing the maker.

    He has a music page on his website - https://lowellbailey.com/music/

    And I noticed he's been mentioned on the list before. Looks like at one point NBC had video of him playing Over the Waterfall.

    Was sort of fun to see that clip last night.
