Thanks Marcy, I really appreciate you checking out my page. I think I was enthralled by your picture of the back of your Martin with the three piece rosewood back. It reminded me of the back of my OM. I love the look of the contrasting sections. I'm glad you liked my guitars. Feel free to check out the recordings I've posted.
Just thought I'd say hello. I've known about you and your work for a long time and always enjoyed what I'd heard. Mainly your duo work and children's recordings. I remember an article and maybe a cover photo in "Acoustic Guitar"? Not sure, I remember the article though. I see you work with Kathy Fink. I remember when she recorded with "Duck" Donald back in the '70s. Okay, that makes us all sound too old. Great to see you here.
Hello to a fellow Marylander! I was looking at your instrument list and I thought I'd ask you a question...I am interested in an octave mandolin...ever since I played one at House of Musical Traditions (a store I am sure you know of) I have wanted one...do you have any experience with them at all?
