My Otis Tomas Mandolin

Otis Tomas is a fiddle maker in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Currently in the process of building me a 5 string fiddle. To celebrate I learned this tune dedicated to one of his instruments, and wrote a second tune to go along with it called "My Otis Tomas Violin".

Nico,

I searched for it on Soundcloud by name and couldn’t find it. The only platform I know the tune on is Spotify, and linking that through Youtube can be a problem due to regions, and not everyone uses Spotify. I did credit them on the Soundcloud post though, so not as if I’m taking credit.

Re: My Otis Tomas Mandolin

Cool - I didn’t see it when I looked at your link earlier! Any reason to plug them, and their fantastic CD, is a good one, in my opinion.

Doug, I was the one who linked you the tune in the comments of that video, funnily enough.

Re: My Otis Tomas Mandolin

Yes indeed, thanks for that, it’s always nice to hear a few different versions
