The first artist is Vicki Shell, of Johnson City, TN. Vicki is a musician and builds mandolins out of canteen gourds. She says her instruments are different than most because she has found a way to tune them to standard pitch. (Most all gourd instruments are tuned an octave low to prevent putting too much pressure on the gourd and cracking it.) I have seen some beautiful gourd banjos and guitars, but this is the first mandolin I've seen. meant to be played and not just to look at!
