    Yes, I've been tuning in. He's also played a bunch of the Gallop to Georgia tunes from the CD he did with Norman Blake. A master for sure.

    I've watched both shows. I've really enjoyed his music and his humor. He talked about the several instruments he played this past Sunday.

    since most of these are from facebook, if you are not on there you can't watch. I am not on facebook so missing out on these. Would be nice to see them.

    I've been watching on Sundays. I enjoyed the mandola playing this past Sunday. I may even restring one of my mandolas with octave pairs on the C and G. I remember Mike telling me about this setup several years ago.

    I think Heidi may have put one or more of these on You Tube

    And while some folks, if they haven’t played something in a while will beg off on the request, Mike has come through on all of the requests even if he has to do some wood shedding and play it the next week.

    Mike's really pulling some great tunes and these are a pleasure to watch. He kicked off with Methodist Preacher and I think I could study that one tune for a year.

    I've been watching and really enjoying these. Mike is so talented and so down to earth.

    I'm tellin y'all. I'm not a fan of facebook, for any other reason, but for this. I even found if one gets the app rather than just using a browser, you can not only watch live, but see live comments from around the world. Like i said, in the pre-covid world, i'd have given it a pass, but somehow this seems like the best thing i've found.

    Yes, it's been wonderful to get to hear and watch Mike play like this. Had my laptop out by the grill last night to tune in.
