    Default Radim Zenkl's house and instruments destroyed in fire

    In addition to links in various places on the Cafe regarding the loss of homes and instruments from California Bluegrass Association members, fellow mandolinist and friend to many, Radim Zenkl, lost his home and a number of instruments in the California fire.

    Below, a picture of what was his house. A GoFundMe to help Radim get back on his feet has been established by David Grisman. We hope those of you that have the means to donate will consider a gift to assist. Right now it's just David and Tracy Grisman, Acoustic Disc and the Cafe that has donated and we hope for others to join us in supporting Radim.

    What a tragic loss this has turned into for so many.

    ...When I first heard of the fire I was hoping it didn't get his house, damn, made me cry. I've been to many camps with him, MandoJam and Lark Camp. You're a good man Radim and I hope the donations help. I put in a few shekels and a bit of love too....

    So Sad!!! There is also an email for folks who could put on a benefit house concert for Radim in your area.
    For that, please contact Radim directly at europick@zenkl.com.

    For those of you all around the country who haven't had a chance to host or otherwise attend a Radim house concert, there's no time better, and you're in for a major treat. Go for it.

    Don Julin and I just played an impromptu mandolin-duet benefit concert here in Portland Oregon last night. It was a beautiful evening of music, and the ticket sales and extra audience donations to Radim totaled $680 which I just put into the GoFundMe site.

    Thanks for coming out, Don, and thanks to all of you who were a part of last night.

    I'd be happy to play more benefit house concerts anywhere within a few hours of Portland if anyone is interested in hosting.
    best wishes to Radim, and all of you,

    This is such awful news. Radim is one of the kindest and most talented people in the mandolin business. Just sent in my support.

    I've decided to pin this thread to the top of the General Discussions forum until the campaign is over, hoping we can do the best we can for Radim who is a *great* guy. If you ever have the chance to see him perform or attend one of his workshops, don't miss it.
