    Re: RIP Nanci Griffith

    So sorry to hear this. Saw her in the 80s and 90s. What a good soul and singer songwriter. She left this world too soon.

    Re: Porch Pride

    Regardless of one’s personal convictions, I have to agree with the viewpoint of an inappropriate political topic, especially as the headliner. “ Topics started for or end up being used to discuss...

    Re: RIP cafe member man_dough_nollij

    Yeah, Lee (man_dough_nollig) was an interesting character here on the Cafe. Like journeybear, I was also one of his Cafe friends. He lived in the Rockies and worked a few stints in Antarctica (with...

    Re: Mom's miniature parlor

    That’s an impressive miniature parlor. My wife is also into miniatures. Here’s an Irish cottage interior she created (with mandolin content).

    Re: Prettiest A model I have seen in a while

    Mary, since you’re talking voicing, could you compare/contrast the Ellis to your Heiden?

    Dave,

    I went on a southwest Ireland music tour with Inishfree last year and had a fabulous time. We toured quaint villages and countryside by day and caught intimate ITM in the pubs every evening....

    Re: Jeremy Kittel Band featuring Josh Pinkham

    Thought I’d bump this threading give a shout out to Josh Pinkham and his amazing mandolin chops. I saw them for the third time since the release of “Whorls.” They had the full 5 piece band last...

    Re: Mandolin or Octave Mandolin

    Mandolin would be a better fit. Whether you choose a flat top or an arch top octave mandolin, it’s voicing is similar to guitar and would be lost in the mix. You might want to consider a resonator...

    Re: Summer NAMM 2019 Report

    If you haven’t played one multidon, I recommend trying one first. I waited for months for an Eastman octave but ended up returning it after being disappointed.

    Re: Should I Buy an OM

    One thing to consider if there is more than one guitar at a session, the OM occupies a similar niche sonically, so it may be overkill. On the other hand, you can add color if you play counter melody,...
