Cut from the recording available on the Cafe MP3 page. Terrific recording from a guy that always turns out some tasty playing.

Tasty recording....

I'm featuring the opening cut on one of my podcasts--"Orcas Isle", which was written here during Chad's visit to the island.

Now if I can only figure out whether it's pronounced "Fade-lee" or "Fad-lee"... ;-)

I think it's pronounced "Ch-ad"


Great recording froma great guy - features our bass player, Mary Sackmann on a few cuts.

5 Stars!

I just bought a copy, but I forgot to get it autographed.
I think he should drop the last name all together (just for performance) and just go with "Chad".

Why is it that every time I dig in and find the make of a particularly particularly mouth-watering mandolin tone I find its a Gilchrist? Man oh man. What tone.

I'm gonna have to order this one (the CD that is).

How did you get a hold of Chad Fadely's email? I would really like to obtain some tabs for the song " The Back Room".

Chad plays a Gil mandolin & a Fletcher Brock Octave mandolin. He won't be letting go of that Gil, that's for sure.

Here is a photo I took of Chad (with his Gilchrist) and Michael Cleveland playing at a after concert party, in Helena last June. Michael came to town to play with my late friend Walt Timmerman (aka Bill Jr.).
