March 23, 2015 | Mandolin Cafe celebrates Grisman 70th Birthday
Mandolin Cafe Site Admin Scott Tichenor and company have published a stirring tribute to one of the century's key mandolin advocates, David "Dawg" Grisman. It would be hard to come up with the name of anyone who's had a bigger responsibility for innovating and archiving some of the best music ever created by our 8-string wonder. Dozens of fret luminaries have posted a brief memento of how the 70 year-old artist has created a space for artists and new ways of using the mandolin in new (and traditional folk) styles of music.
Take some time to read the thoughts from the likes of Matt Flinner, Don Julin, Mike Marshall, Don Stiernberg, John Reischman, and many more.
