HALF BUILT F SERIES MANDOLIN, Mike Boggan:
"I have a half built an F series mandolin that I can no longer complete because of eye-sight issues.
I will give it away to any muso that will finish it.
Almost all the parts have been made but the back and front of the sound box need some work to get them to the right dimensions. There is a set of Stewart McDonald blueprints that shows all the dimensions.
WANT TO JOIN A NEW BAND? Do you play fiddle, accordion,
mandolin, guitar or bass? Brisbane based folk band looking for more members!
Influences: The Pogues, The Clancy Brothers, Paul Kelly, The Go Betweens.
Mandolin player of many years, but never seriously until my discovery of the music of Turlough O’Carolan, would like to make contact with other players of almost any instrument - cello would be fantastic! The only essential is a love of folk music generally and Carolan in particular.
I live on the Redcliffe Peninsula, Brisbane, and envisage that if feasible, geographically, could meet and enjoy music. If it really worked, public performance is not impossible.. If distance prevents, I see no reason why we could not swap recordings, sheet music and ideas!’ ph: (07) 3203 0590.

Listing is free, and provided as a service to the Australian Folk Community. This message is being sent to existing Directory entries, FAA members past and current, and participants in the Ausworld folk and radio lists.
