    Ok, I will be the first to ask, what brand is the mandolin Mr. Ostroushko is playing in the clip with Mr. Rogers?

    It is a Gavin Baird. He no longer makes instruments.

    Peter Ostroushko is one of my favorites. For a while I had his Mando Chronicles constantly playing in the background.

    Thanks for mentioning this cd set, Jeff. I've ad it on the last thirty minutes or so--it's hard to say how wonderful it is.
    Do you have any advice for aspiring fiddlers?

    His mandolin is a carved top. Sheba was the name of Gavin's instruments. He made a Peter Ostroushko model.

    Pretty much where ever Pete was playing music - good things were happening, Pete was very vocal about preferring the A model mandolins and pretty much played that Baird in the later part of his career.

    What a great tunes!

    The second tune is on his Blue Mesa record.
