    Default Andrew Marlin and Crew in Portland

    Just curious if many folks saw Andrew and his crew in Portland Oregon a couple of nights ago. It was spectacular and they looked to be having a blast. The most fun I've had in awhile. Thanks guys, Eli, Andrew and all. Special.

    I had every intention of being there, but spaced it. I was not very happy with myself. I did speak with a certain luthier from up that way who got to spend some time with Andrew after the show. There may even be some videos of what transpired around.

    I was there. Actually, my whole family was there. It was a fantastic show.

    Jordan Tice was also great.

    OK, what mandolin did Andrew play? Someone had to ask.

    He played the Loar. And it was the most magical sound I've ever heard from a mandolin. We were right up front, so we were hearing the instruments themselves, as opposed to the mic'd sound (it's a very small venue).

    Would have been nice to see you at the show Will. One of the best instrumental performances I've seen in a long time. Among other pieces, they played nearly all of the Buried in a Cape project. The instrumental compositions and arrangements on that album are so damn good - fun to hear them play it live. Eli, Christian and Andrew have some amazing chemistry. I got to go backstage with Matt Ruhland and talk and pick with Andrew. Very cool experience. Got to hear Andrew play my Ruhland F5 - he played a sweet little bluegrass waltz and I'm pretty sure he left some mojo in it. I got to play Andrew's Loar for a minute but one of the coolest things was watching Matt play that Loar and take mental notes on the tone and architecture of the instrument. Quite a fun night.
