    Donna's birthday is February 7th, but any day is a good day to share some Stoneman Family music!

    My bad. I’m usually obsessive about fact checking but when I saw it on my Facebook I didn’t think twice.

    Thanks for the post Gary. Although I've been a Mandolin Cafe member since 2004 I've only been playing for two years and I'm just becoming acquainted with the mandolin greats. So now I know about Donna Stoneman and the Stoneman Family after following the youtube trail. I even watched a nice interview done by Tara Linhardt who I've also just learned of and like very much.
