And a Grand Time Was Had by Few

I was invited to help kick off a 12-hour “Make Music Pasadena” festival, which started at the lovely, oak-paneled Pasadena Central Library this morning.  I brought Frank along for a couple tunes as well.  I did a bit of my historical provenance schtick and played a short set for the small, but very appreciate audience.

Other than that, I’ve just been super busy on the recording compilations (first one is about ready for mastering, and pretty exciting).

I did get in and photograph a fascinating Dyer specimen that I’ll blog about shortly.  And tonight I’ll be shooting the instrument below that just came in for consignment, getting the listing going and posted.  (The original case is missing a piece, so the protruding bits should wet the appetite of savvy HG aficionados)

    a dyer mando with subbasses? I am shocked that this is not already in the Miner Museum!
    You are really going to let this one go?

  2. Benoit Says:

    A double bass with swiss cheese and a stuffed dauphin???

  3. Gregg Says:

    Both wrong!
    Surely you know I already own one of these…
    PS: The Dyer I mentioned is already gone.

  4. Darrell Says:

    Now THAT’s what I call an end-opening case! What did you play on the Dunn?

  5. Gregg Says:

    Something to demo the instrument – a nice little cover arrangement (come to the Gathering and find out!)…

  6. nate Says:

    I thought it was a knutsen harp mando but did not want to contradict the pope.

  7. Gregg Says:

    mmm…could be.

  8. Gregg Says:

    The mando is up!
