For all you bluegrass mandolin lovers

Recommended Posts

ABC (as in Australian Broadcasting Corporation) Radio National broadcast a great program on bluegrass mandolin last week featuring the builder Steve Gilchrist and Mike Compton, who plays mandolin with the Nashville Bluegrass Band and who was visiting down under for a festival.

 

You can hear it online for the next three weeks:

Lots of stuff about the history of the instrument, its design and construction by Lloyd Loar and the music and players - including of course, Bill Monroe.
