    Thanks for the interview and the video! I’d love to have more info on the song, and tab would be great, though you’re clearly very busy gentlemen at the moment! Best of luck on your tour!!

    Also, downloaded the new album this morning and think I've listened through it 3 times already. Very nicely done!

    Wow!

    What a great translation of fiddle ideas to the mandolin. So clean yet authentic and still just a bit tipsy. Nicely done. I look forward to hearing more.

    Just happened to see this article in the Milwaukee newspaper. Very moving story about the band's support of mental health issues.

    Very nice! I'd be very happy to see any tune transcriptions you and the other guys want to put together. Standard notation for me.

    Some news from the band. Haven just took over #1 on the Billboard Top Bluegrass albums list replacing All Ashore from Punch Brothers.

    So that we keep the focus on the band and the interview, please start the inevitable "that ain't bluegrass" discussion separately, and you're welcome to do so.

    Yes please to a transcription of that great jig. Also a question. Have you been influenced by any of the great Scottish trad bands who have bending traditional tunes in recent years. I think I hear echoes in the WB3 approach.

    I've heard some of your music on the radio through Sirius XM channel 62 Bluegrass Junction - good stuff. After reading the interview and watching the video I ordered 'Haven' and 'String Theory' which were delivered this morning - not a bad song in the lot - keep up the good work! And please count me in for a transcription when you can find time for that...thanks.
