My Electric Mandolin
I added a bit to my bio on this web site.
I took my guitar with me everywhere. It attracted other musicians. In my last year of high school I went to visit a “ham” radio friend at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. We went to a coffee shop on a bitterly cold night. In came Pete Seger with his banjo, and, we, along with one other customer and the owner got a private concert.
