    Greetings, fellow Mando-Iowans!

    Fretboard wizards David Grier and Mike Compton will stop in Marshalltown, IA for a workshop/concert on Thursday, October 1. A small-group two-hour workshop for mandolin (featuring Mr. Compton) or guitar (featuring Mr. Grier) will be held from 4PM until 6PM; cost is $50 per person. Concert will start at 8PM (doors open at 7:30PM); tickets are $20. All events are at Central Christian Church, 300 West Main Street, Marshalltown (about 50 miles northeast of Des Moines). The venue is acoustically excellent but intimate; for this event, best get your tickets early.

    Contact Chris Thiessen (641-691-1158) for workshop or concert reservations or ticket pre-purchase.

    I know these guys are also appearing in Davenport for much less, but if you're closer to Des Moines, this may be an alternative to the travel time.

    I'm trying to get my mind around why the cost for the workshop and concert is $7.00 in Davenport ( ) and $70.00 in Marshalltown? I live in Marshalltown, but I think I'm going to pass on this one.

    HP: One word to help clarify your confusion: subsidy.

    The Marshalltown venue holds about 170 comfortably. Of course, the workshops will be far more intimate (limited to 5-6) rather than the mass "everyone with a ticket can attend."

    the greatest show to go threw and nobody comments. if the show and marshelltown was as good as the one in davenport. it was the bomb.

    It shoulda been. I would hope the ticket price didn't keep folks away as an intimate setting with those two is a real treat!

    Just a quick update: the Grier/Compton show was, of course, fantastic. We were privy to two immense talents just sitting around and playing. Most cool. But a follow-up question to Joe Nobiling's question on ticket prices: without a subsidy (which the Davenport show had), what do folks feel would be a "reasonable" ticket price for such a show?

    i missed the work shop. but the cost of the two hour trip to mashall town to see mike and dave and back to muscatine. I'd do that tickets the wife and i $40 gas $25 plus food drive threw on 80. heck lets drive over to frankford Ill. tickets there were more then marshell town. smaller venue. thats about three hours from me. am i crazy to want to make that drive for this show. we know the show is worth the price of the ticket( again not talking about the workshop.)
