    Thanks for sharing! Interesting read. He's an incredible musician and from the article you can see he's a fine human being with a great appreciation for life.

    Probably not on Sunday as I think Sunday is reserved for family time.

    Thanks for the PDF—the article didn't make the Rocky Mountain edition of the print edition of today's paper.

    I really enjoy hearing about the greats, in any field, dealing with normal life stuff. Granted, Chris is living a charmed life of his own, but balancing family and career, making time for loved ones, recalibration after demanding work schedule, etc. Helps to see their base humanity.

    With that said, I’d also like to understand more about the superhuman side of Chris - all that happens inside his spectacular mind to make him create what he creates.....but save that for another article somewhere.

    Chris has been a part of the mandolin landscape so long, that it's hard to realize that he's just now coming to the broader public's attention as a significant entertainer, cultural presence, influencer...
