to all visitors: Back
around December 2008 I decided to discontinue publication of
News newsletter. With
the birth of my latest offspring, Jackson Monroe Laird, and my
activities with my bands Cedar
Express, and The
Incorrigible String Band... and my online video mandolin, banjo and other productions
I simply didn't have the time to sit in front of the
Mac and tap out mando-centric thought for the newsletter. It was
fun to write and there are lots of interesting things in these
archives if you take the time to look them over.
Update: April 2017 I have restarted the newsletter, this time in an email format. After you dig through these old gems please click here and see the new version and subscribe for free!

Here is a link to the MP3 file I made of "Cold Hard Cash" which is mentioned in Issue 14.
