    We're long-time fans of Andrews music so happy to see him making an appearance here.

    Shout out to the author Cary Fagan who is a member among us. For those of you that don't know he's a marvelous author, and yes, award winning. Have read two of his books. If you require mandolin content his wonderful Valentine's Fall is a must read.

    Looking forward to seeing him Saturday night on Vancouver Island. Always a great show and appreciate that he does tour as much as he does and hits the smaller towns. He's also a wonderful teacher and inspiration.

    I’ve been a fan going back to “Little Widgets.” His “embrace sucking” advice is completely on target.

    Andrew was in town last year with the trio as visiting artists for a local arts organization. I had the privilege of meeting him — they’re all really nice guys — and hearing them play for an inner city middle school orchestra class. Wonderfully informal and intimate and they connected with the kids, no small feat.

    Their only open-to-the public performance was in a little venue out in the country. I was unable to attend. But to my horror the mandolin player at the same venue the very next night was yours truly. I suppose it was an opportunity to embrace sucking. : ) I survived.
