    Great interview. I'm going to check out some choro and other Brazilian mandolin music, and more of Tim's stuff. That Arrow mandolin sure looks cool, also.

    A scholar and an artist; I learned a lot from Tim in lessons, swing jams, and listening at house concerts. The word that comes to me is "subtle:" June Apple and other tunes show a variety of tone, dynamics, and interplay between the duetists. But it is always musical, never in your face or "watch THIS!" Gives us a whole different way of thinking about the instrument. Portland lost Chris Thiele to Brooklyn, and Brian Oberlin is moving back to Michigan. Hope we can hang on to Tim!

    Thank you so much! I appreciate the introduction to Tim Connell and his music. What an informative interview and such a joy to watch. I agree with Doc James: Tim " gives us a whole different way of thinking about the instrument " What a gift.

    I was happy to find a detailed review praising Tim's new CD "MandAlone" in the Classical Mandolin Society of America 's "Mandolin Journal"- August. Just wanted to share the good news! More great mandolin music to enjoy!
