    Default Peter Ostroushko and Danny Gotham. 10/18/2007

    if you have the time, this is worth just playing in the background if you are doing house work or something,



    What a perfect moment captured in time

    Looks like Danny is using a Trillium zouk or octave too.

    It was after spending time with Peter on one of the porches at the Augusta Music Festival that cultivated my infatuation for the mandolin in the 80's. Though it was Dawg and Jerry Garcia playing together that motivated me to learn the mandolin 30 years after Peter and Augusta.
    What a talent and nice guy!

    Interesting. I took some mandolin lessons in the late 80's from a Danny Gotham in Potsdam NY. If I recall correctly he sat in with Frank Wakefield on campus at Clarkson University. And did some finger style blues on mandolin when he sat in with a blues guy.

    Danny Gotham is active as a guitar and mandolin playing musician and music teacher in the Chapel Hill, NC area. He sold his Nugget to Andrew Marlin (now plays a Northfield). Several years ago he brought Peter O into the NC for concerts and I hosted a mandolin workshop with Peter. He was a very soulful musician with a huge focus on producing tone, rather than a flurry of notes (although he could do that also). Yet another great musician that we lost over the past few years.
