Our son's first mandolin outing
« on: January 30, 2012, 06:45:43 PM »
Our son started playing mandolin a while back (mostly after seeing Wine and Alchemy) and this is his first performance of song they are doing for a variety show coming up soon.  The boy on the fiddle is a classmate, and the bouzouki is played by his dad, our son's mandolin teacher and a very good friend of ours.  For the variety show they will be garbed - the performance here was in a small place where Grant Wood is from.

Did I hear the teacher say your son has only been playing a couple of months?!?

What the Baron said.... That's pretty awesome, G.  I hope he sticks with it!  Are you musically inclined as well?
