Mandolin Players.

Would be interested to hear some peoples favorite players. I never did see Bill Monroe so can't comment on him.
Jeff Austin with Yonder Mountain string band is certainly an exciting player to see live but technically who knows. Same for Drew Emitt and Sam Bush.
The guy who blew me away live was David Grisman. He has been around a long time of course but seems under appreciated or is that just my imagination ?
Thoughts from the peanut gallery ?

Grisman is great, and underrated. That might have something to do with his allegedly unfriendly demeanor. But he sounds anything but on the series of records he made with Jerry Garcia, which are great.
Another player not on Stone's thoughtful list worthy of note is Mike Marshall.
