    Really enjoyed this interview, and I became an instant fan of Scroggins & Rose! Thanks for linking to that album. Fresh take on trad tunes, Monroe tunes, and a Paganini caprice by stellar players - what's not to like?

    I like this young mans attitude. He seems to have a the idea of rather than rush out and try to make a name for himself, To take it slower and learn all you can about what it is you are doing and the name will come. I believe he will be around along time, not just a flash in the pan.
    I like this quote from his interview.
    "I am perpetually blown away by how creative, fresh, and expressive Jesse's solos are and the same for Jordan Ramsey who I always thought struck a tasteful balance in his solos. That's why I'd want to wait awhile to record any sort of full-length "crosspicking mandolin album." I'd want to wait until I had enough to creatively express something."

    Nice interview, Tristan is only in his early 20s and heís a monster player, I canít wait until his 40s and beyond, I hope Iím around to watch. I got the Grayna album shortly after it was released and if it was vinyl Iíd have worn it out listening while playing golf last summer. Iím looking forward to their next release.

    I was inspired to work out Clinch Mtn Backstep in this style and Iím messing around with Salt Creek now. Itís a great way to work on picking and learning the fretboard up in 4th and 5th position.

    The mandolin doesn't stop with Grisman, Bush, Thile or even Hull. It has a future in people like this. This is great.

    I started learning mandolin in December after playing guitar for several years (I still play guitar). I have been seeking out inspiring and exciting mandolin music and players. After reading this interview, I listened to Grana. I must say, I was really blown away by what Scroggins and Rose were able to accomplish. I canít wait to hear more in the future.

    Great interview!

    Am I the only one who sees Thelonious Monk's Brilliant Corners album cover when I see the top picture? Great shot, BTW.

    Even better playing!

    Quite a sweet sounding and articulate mandolin. David Houchens had finished some wonderful work on my Stanley's neck and we talked about this mandolin last night. It seems that Sherry Stelling and another knowledgeable mandolin/fiddler think that David built this one for Geoff. i'm not surprised, as his Bryce guitars and mandolins are exceptional sounding and have stellar workmanship.

    A correction to my previous post: i had missed Tristan's video on Peghead Nation where he revealed some history of this mandolin, and it was actually made by John Hamlett. Turns out there's an identical twin to it, in both wood and sound. Excellent work, John and thanks very much for the link to the video.
