Marylhurst Instrument Show

Sunday Concert Schedule

Went to the show at Marylhurst as we usually do, and if you were local and you skipped it, you missed a great time. Lots of handmade instruments, guitars, fiddles, basses, charangas, flutes, harps, lutes, banjos, and ukuleles. Great mini-concerts, fifteen minutes each of excellent players showcasing instruments. We saw half a dozen of these, including Travis Stine on ukulele, doing his version of Jake's arrangement of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," on a tenor uke by Mark Roberts.

Three bucks apiece for admission. Can't beat that with a stick ...

Absolutely beautiful.
John from the old Dojo Rat Blog checking in. New Blog, different topics. Got a good interview with David Slawson from The Warren Commission up right now.

Boy, you've come a long way since you taught yourself guitar, now ukes. Perhaps you are the student that has surpassed the master.
Keep it up 48th Samurai!
