The 2020 Richter Mandolin Camp featuring Don Julin welcomes Kimble Mandolins, Grant Street Inn, and New Riff Distilling as sponsors

Anyone who knows me knows that I love Will Kimble. He’s an incredible soul, a great friend, and an incomparable builder of world-class mandolins. Since 2004, I’ve owned and played several of his mandolins–two-points, A’s, an F, and an octave. As he has done since the beginning, he puts the weight of Kimble Mandolins behind […]

Castles Made of Sand (Jimi Hendrix) on Pono Octave Mandolin

It has been awhile!!  2016 was a year of doctoral-focused work.  I wrote an early thesis and took my qualifying exams (I passed, thank you very much). Being a bit burned out by school and work, I’ve taken 2017 off from school, allowing me to focus on work, family, and especially music.  I couldn’t host […]

New tab and video: The Needle and the Damage Done (Neil Young)
