Chris, I've enjoyed your articles for a long time. I especially appreciated the one about your recovering. I hope all is still going well.

Yup, Chris. We've tapped the next person on the list - it's a young guy who wants to play the banjo as well as Ralph Stanley. Thanks to your contribution as well as others, we're sending six students to kamp this year. Three to flatpicking, one to mandolin, and two to bluegrass banjo.

Hey Bud, good to "see you around' this place. Will you be at Kamp again this year?

I found the most magnificent old book store that you'd find magical; I need to tell you all about it, so plan on lunch one day!

Hi, Chris, Good to see you here... well I guess I would, wouldn't I?

I sure enjoyed the David Grier concert you put together in Marshalltown. I'll hope for more such concerts in the future.

Oh, and I finally took the time to subscribe.

Castle Ridge is playing at Rock Creek State Park this Friday night (6/27). We'd appreciate if you'd let people know.

- Mark

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
