Mopane Olive set and reedmaking
I’ve been working on this set for a few days and the connectors, mainstock, and chanters are done. I was hoping to finish the chanters in time to make the Irish session tonight at Jack of the Wood but it took me a bit longer than I expected and I caught the local fiddler and banjo player just walking out the door. So I went back home and played a bit in the house and took this badly lit picture. I love the way the Olive looks with the Mopane and it smells terrific, like, olive oil, kind of. Well I’m on to drones tomorrow and I’ll probably take this set out to San Diego to play the session out there as well as try it out busking here in Asheville.
