    Please, no politics! Maybe in our Great Empire State someone would have the idea of a per-string tax...

    I have always thought it would be neat to start some kind of manolin quartet, or even a mandolin orchestra, here in the Binghamton area. There was one in Rochester for a while, and I considered joining, but it would have been a haul, and in the winter a particularly inconvenient one.

    I live in Lodi NY in The Finger Lakes about 1/2 hour north of Ithaca and Watkins Glen. Our family hosts Pickin' In The Pasture on our sheep farm here on the 4th week of August each year. The event runs Thur, Fri, Sat, and Sun. Pickin' In The Pasture features a world-class lineup of traditional bluegrass music. The festival also serves as an annual meeting place for a lot of fine bluegrass pickers who indulge in the great jam sessions that occur. There are instructional workshops conducted by some of the top bluegrass musicians and songwriters in the business that are very popular with those looking to expand their musical skills.

    I play b#@jo in my son's group, The Jesse Alexander Band. Jesse plays mandolin and fiddle, his mother plays bass, and our good friend Darryl Lesh plays guitar. Jesse has a couple of albums out and we enjoy playing festivals around NY and PA.

    We like getting together and playing music with people so give as a call or email if you want to pick sometime.

    hi all! i'm in syracuse. i picked up a rogue mandolin from a pawn shop back in january and despite the fact that the darn thing won't hold a tuning i've been pickin and strummin and learnin as best i can without going to a professional. if anyone ever wants to show me a thing or two i'd be mighty thankful! i can read tabs just fine and strum chords but i feel like i'm missin something. hopefully once i've saved up enough dough to buy a nicer mando things might come a little easier.

    I'm not sure if anyone is still following this post, but I live in Cortland, NY. I'm new to the mandolin, but I've been playing other instruments for a long time. I'm interested in bluegrass, oldtime, gospel, and traditional Irish music - primarily bluegrass, though. I'm interested in hearing about any events or jam sessions taking place in the area. Thanks!

    No wait. That's a lie. I was born and raised in Middletown. But now I'm living far away. Wales in fact. Don't ask why. But it has something to do with a secret government mission. I'm undercover. Shhh.
