Sending out his beloved mandolin is his version of being a dreamer, paying it forward. The bottle shaped mandolin is free floating in the universe. Not knowing whose hands would enjoy it next or who would wind up with it. It is on a five year journey and is scheduled to return to MerleFest in 2015.
When it returns ( in good shape), Gabrielle Gray at the International Bluegrass Music Museum (www.bluegrass-museum.org ) plans to put it there as an exhibit. it belongs to the people. It is scheduled to return to MerleFest in 2015.
If you are one of the lucky ones that receive the mandolin, Dr. B asks that you send in your documentation, Any who receives the bottle shaped mandolin would put on its case a regional sticker to promote your geographic area or your favorite band.Then e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org with you-tube links or pictures. He’ll post them here on the website or on hisblog (drtombibey.wordpress.com) to document the mandolin’s travels. If my mandolin shows up at your favorite festival maybe a picture of you holding it beside a banner to promote your event would help your cause.
Send in your documentation; your images might end up being part of the permanent display in the Museum.
