    In reflecting, the player who has had the most influence on me is Brian Oberlin. Through him, both with lessons and his camp, I got acquainted with classical players such as Carlo Aonzo and Evan Marshall, grassers from Radim Zenkl to Mike Compton, and swing guys like Don S and Paul Glasse, not to mention Brian’s own playing in multiple genres. Seeing his ROW concert in 2013 has changed my musical life and I’m enjoying the journey immensely.

    Unlike guitar, when me and about 10 million others wanted to be Beatles, I was told I needed to play mandolin by a three year old, so I bought one. I happened on mandolessons.com, so I suppose Baron was my earliest influence.

    Dave Appollon and Dave Swarbrick (Fairport Convention and Ian Campbell Folk Group). I also liked Hamish Bayne from The McCalmans but Dave Appollon by a mile.

    Hard to believe that no one has mentioned Ronnie McCoury yet!! For me it was Ronnie, Monroe and Compton. Plus a bunch of good local talent.
