How would you like to be a world record holder ?
On Tuesday, August 7th at 2 PM an attempt to break the Guinness Book Record for the Largest Mandolin Ensemble ever will take place at the Galax Fiddler's Convention in Galax, Va
As they say on the event's Facebook page
Folks can just strum along or play basic melodies or harmonies. We will play really easy tunes like maybe, Old Joe Clark (in A), Angeline the Baker (in D), Cripple Creek (in A), and a couple of others.
Tell every picker to come and bring a few extra mandos if they can too!
That sounds fun and if that was not enough, the event organisers have added....
"Eastman is now sponsoring our event too!
If we break the record, some lucky participant will win a brand new Eastman mandolin! We just need about 500 mandolin players to immortalize ourselves and make mando history!!"
How cool is that ?
