Emily Wilson is a professional mandolin player and teacher who came into the possession of the Karasik Mandolin, a very rare 1923 Gibson F‑5 model, signed by Lloyd Loar. Loar was responsible for making the prototypical mandolin that bluegrass musicians prefer the most, and only a few hundred Loar-signed instruments exist. While the mandolin was a loan from her old teacher’s estate, the time has come for her to secure investment to purchase the mandolin. We built this website as a hub for the Karasik Mandolin, so that Emily could maintain a solid web presence as she works to secure more than $100,000 in funding to purchase the instrument. We have set up a YouTube feed of the Karasik Mandolin Project channel — the project aims to have as many musicians play this unique instrument as possible, and documents a song that they’ve played on it. The resulting website is a dynamic site that looks stunning across all devices.
