    Default Some killer Pacifica pics by Bethany Burie

    While were at IBMA, this past September, I delivered a new Pacifica mandolin to a tremendous young player, Nate Burie.

    His sister, Bethany, not only is a talented guitar player (and singer), but also a fine photographer too. So, what a treat to have Bethany turn her artistic eye to Nate's new mandolin.

    I feel so lucky to have met these talented young players and can't wait to hear the music that they will create with their siblings, Joe and Rebekah, and the Burie Family band

    Here is a video from their current Kickstarter project for the next CD --

    Photo of the back is my desktop background now, should I pay a royalty or something? Amazing.

    Thanks ! ! ! Sure has been fun getting to know The Burie Family. As you can see, there's a lot of talent in the family. I'm really proud and delighted to have Nate playing this Pacifica. It's a cool bonus that these pictures by Bethany are consistently the most eye-grabbing of the shots I've got of recent builds.

    Please stop this! No more backs like that, it's making me feel inferior!

    OK go on, I relent, more back shots please
