    Great interview. Just saw Mr Sun here in LA and was extremely impressed. Joe has such beautiful tone and makes it look so effortless. A rising star for sure!

    Superb interview! Just saw Mr. Walsh last night with Grant Gordy and they tore it up from Irving Berlin to Bill Monroe. Pick on, sir!

    I saw Joe with the Gibson brothers a few years ago in Dallas, and he picked a little with us afterwards. He is such a class act and a real monster player. He can play all the notey stuff that's popular now, but he can tear up a Monroe-style bluesy double stop solo as well. I've glad to hear he's staying busy and getting more recognition.

    Man. Joe is one of my favorite players. So light, quick and subtle. And it seems his playing doesn't get stuck in one style or sound. He's so dang original. I could (and do) listen to his playing all day.

    Great interview! Joe has become one of my favorite mandolin players, nay, favorite musicians to listen to over the last couple of years. Seems like he always is doing something different, but perfect for the song. Beyond stoked to hear the Mr. Sun album.

    Caught Mr Sun at Wintergrass this year. Amazing show, amazing collaborative musicianship. And they were having SO much fun! Looking forward to the record.

    Thanks for a great interview. I've had the pleasure of attending Mr. Sun shows, 3 years running as the band has evolved. Joe can sometimes be found gigging in a Southern Maine pizza pub with some equally talented players. Joe conveys very real joy when he plays; it's obvious that he and his fellow musicians are enjoying the musical conversation.

    Great interview! Joe is one of my favorite mandolin players. Seen him tearing it up with the Gibson Brothers and also at a local house concert. I recommend his cd Sweet Loam and also the Peghead Nation lessons. His mandolin of choice also makes me a proud A-style (Girouard) player.

    I too have been listening to Joe Walsh a lot. Very inspirational and probably my favorite young mandolin player. I love his playing on Darol Anger's E and A. Great interview.

    Thanks for the interview. Here in Maine we tend to think of him as one of our own...but clearly he's gone to the world!
    One watch by night, one watch by day...if you get confused, just listen to the music play.

    I was most fortunate to have Joe as an instructor at the Ossipee Valley String Camp last summer....GRRRRREAT teacher and what a pleasure to sit with him in class and then hear him perform at night.

    Thank you for the interview! Does anyone know whether Joe is anticipating an A or F style Nugget? Not that it matters, but I am curious.

    sgrexa,
    I just saw where he responded to that question on Facebook and it is an A style Nugget.
