On Tuesday, August 7, mandolinists are encouraged to meet at 1:00 p.m. at the main stage to see if Galax can beat the existing record for the largest mandolin ensemble, set at 383 in Germany 7 years ago. You needn’t be a skilled player, just capable of picking out the melody or strumming along on these four tunes:
Old Joe Clark (A)
Cripple Creek (A)
Angeline the Baker (D)
Soldier’s Joy (D)
The Galax folks ask that anyone interested in participating make a point of getting to the stage area a little before 1:00. Best of luck!
