    Howdy Skip; I met you at Wintergrass a few years ago and you taught me the Waltz in G. I got your Mandolin in the Cow Camp CD and really enjoy it! I just learned the Streets of Larado on my mandolin and me 1924 Gibson mandola H model and it sounds really cool. Would like to see you perform out west here and maybe I could line a few places out for you to play. Well take care. Do you have a direct email address? Thanks

      Hello Randall!

      Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I remember you and your great enthusiasm for the old time music. Would love to get back to Wintergrass again , maybe in 2015 . There’s a possibility I might be headed out your way this June, before or after Weiser for some gigs and will make an effort to keep you posted.
      All the best , pardner,
      Skip

      Hey Jeff!
      Great to hear from you as always! Are you staying warm enough out there in old, western PA?
      Looking forward one day to actually getting out there and performing before I get to old and ‘stove up’.
      Very best to you , pardner.

        Well, come on down and I’ll make sure you don’t get too old and stove up. We can’t afford to lose you. Better hurry tho. I’m getting that way myself.You know what they say about old cowboys and chiropractors: They don’t die – they just smell that way.

    Love the new website! I own several of Skip’s CDs (yes, they’re all good, so I recommend their purchase without hesitation) and had the honor of being one of his pupils at a mandolin camp sponsored by the International Bluegrass Museum a few years back when I was first interested in learning the Monroe style (a life long process, it turns out). I understand Skip will be moving with Mike Compton to a Nashville area based Monroe mandolin camp this coming year, and I hope to attend and renew my acquaintance with, and learn more from, this incredibly talented and masterful musician, who is also a terrific guy.

      Best to you friend,
