    Thanks for this one Cretan.
    I had not heard Giogos play mandolin before. I think he's great on the laouto, but I must say this is a pretty good mandolin workout.

    Yes, Giorgos Manolakis is known mostly as a laouto player and secondly as a bouzouki player. But personally i like a lot his style in mandolin !
    Check also one very well known laouto player, Giorgos Xylouris, playing the mandolin this time !

    Haven't had time to watch this all yet, but plenty of Cretan mandolin.

    Sweet!
    Love that tone.
    It sounds to me a bit like a mountain dulcimer, with the bubbling resonance. Is that achieved with a certain tuning, in fifths but slightly different?

    Thanks, Dagger! Great stuff. YouTube also brought me to this duet which reminds me of some North American fiddle tunes. I also just noticed this in the notes: Michalis is playing his "German Flat-back" mandolin built by luthier Brian Dean.

    Ah really? Well I must say I didn't expect that. I had certainly assumed it was probably made in Crete. Thanks.

    Sure enough, Michalis is on the list of players who play Brian Dean instruments.

    Michalis is playing with Stelios Petrakis these days. They are about to release a new CD called Spondi. You can watch them in this lengthy Youtube.

    Dagger: I posted a question on one of Michalis’ videos on where to get his recordings. Do you know?

    Not really. I bought one when I was in Houdetsi. Also there is a classical guitarist of the same name, which adds to the difficulty.

    Here is his Facebook page, which has his email. Maybe try messaging him? When you're at it, you might tell him there is some interest in his stuff on Mandolin Cafe!
