    I just realized that the coolest thing about The Wildmans is how Mom and Bass player, Deb Wildman, has quietly enabled these kids to grow -- from tykes sawing and pounding away, to really extraordinary musicians. And she is still right there making it possible.

    So impressive.

    Mark,

    Thank for the comment!

    I must say, the thing that I find to be most odd about MandolinCafe is, at this time, more than 200 people have viewed this posting and about 150 people have viewed the video . . . and nobody pops in to say, "Amazing new music by these young players." etc.

    Just strange. Young musicians like The Wildmans deserve the kind of enthusiastic support that will keep the new music growing!

    Don't just lurk and consume! Support!

    If I had posted a picture of a booger stuck on my BlueChip pick there would be 350 comments, suggestions, opinions, detailed postulations on how the booger got stuck to the pick, options for other types of booger-resistant picks, suggestions for pick-cleaning soaps etc.

    And yet when there are 2 hours of new music in hi-def video by amazing young players . . . nuthin! Just strange, Cafe folk.

    Every ones taste in music is different and I try not to make negative comments of a band or their style. So as one of the 200 who did take the time out of my day to give them an honest listen and "had" not commented, that's why.

    They did an outstanding set at the Charleston SC Bluegrass Festival back in March of this year. That young lady's voice was terrific. Not to mention the young man's mandolin playing. They really nailed Gershwin's "Summertime."

    I'm with Frank. I gave them a listen.

    Nobody wants to hear whatever it is that I don't really prefer in music.

    yep. I'm an old curmudgeon. I'd apologize for it;but,that's just what we do.

    Just wanted to hear that Sorensen mandolin un-plugged.

    Dang,

    Standing right here beside myself.

    Thank you for that un-plugged Sorensen! Nice,

    What was the tune Mr. Wildman was picking?

    Great mandolin sound. Love it.

    Well I agree that it can be hard to keep a conversation going about music, as opposed to the tools of the trade. But in part, it's not easy to write meaningfully about music, beyond 'I like it' or 'I don't', and folks have only so much time to spend typing on internet forums, even faves like the Cafe.

    The Wildmans seem like a nice group, still growing musically. Of the singer, I'll say, 'I remain unconvinced that her relationships have been at all "like Verlaine's and Rimbaud". But then, I like to play 'Shackles and Chains'...

    Brad,

    They are indeed young! Eli Wildman and Victor Furtado are both 18. Both are going to Berklee College of Music in 2019, and I think that environment will really have a big impact on their growth. Aila is only 17.

    Heck, when I first met them, four years ago, they were 14 and 13.

    What has impressed me is the consistent focused attention on growth, and pushing their musical knowledge and capabilities to the edge of what they are able to do at each stage of growth. Amazing work ethic and attitude for their ages.

    Can't wait to hear where they grow to in another four years!

    The tune is Garfield's Blackberry Blossom, great tune. Also a great job from some talented young folks. It will be fun to see where they are in a few years.
