My brother is moving to Atlanta and is looking for folks to play music with. He's a mando player; loves E. European, Russian, etc. (plays in a band in his old town). Any musicians in Atlanta interested in getting together? (he's not a Mudcatter, so I"m writing this as a public service)

There are quite a few here in the Atlanta area. There was at one time a mandolin orchestra which might still be going on but one thing for certain:
There is a very good balalaika orchestra and they are always looking for new players.
Dave Cooper who is the director is a fine musician, mandolin, domra, balalaika (all voices) and a great guy.
Every year, our friends host an International party that often has Bulgarian, Romanian,
Russian and other ethnic musicians attending.
You can send me a personal page message on Mudcat.
