What had primarily been a fad instrument would soon fall into the hands of players that would forever alter its musical direction. This edition of the Savannah Music Festival Live is the second of two programs featuring a concert from our 2010 festival that included mandolin virtuosos Mike Marshall, Chris </span>Thile<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and </span>Caterina<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Lichtenberg<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, with special guest Sarah </span>Jarosz<span style="line-height: 1.5;">.</span></div><p> Fri, 22 Nov 2013 02:00:00 +0000 36377 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Chris Thile, Mike Marshall & Caterina Lichtenberg - Part Two Savannah Music Festival: Chris Thile, Mike Marshall & Caterina Lichtenberg - Part One http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-chris-thile-mike-marshall-caterina-lichtenberg-part-one <div><strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Airs Thursday, Thursday, November 14 at 8 p.m. </span></strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">When mandolins began evolving from the lute family in Italy during the </span>17th<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and </span>18th<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> centuries, they were designed with a round back or bowl back in what was known as the </span>Neopolitan<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> style. By the end of the </span>19th<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> century, a new style with a carved top and back construction inspired by the violin family of instruments began to supplant the European-style mandolins, especially within the United States. On this episode, we listen to a wide range of mandolins and compositions going back several centuries, as performed by three of the most unique and distinct </span>mandolinists<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> in our time: Chris </span>Thile<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Mike Marshall and </span>Caterina<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Lichtenberg<span style="line-height: 1.5;">.</span></div><p> Fri, 15 Nov 2013 02:00:00 +0000 36097 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Chris Thile, Mike Marshall & Caterina Lichtenberg - Part One Caravan http://redriverradio.org/post/caravan-25 <p><strong>Airs Friday, July 26 at 9 p.m. </strong>This week on the Caravan we have a country flavor, both traditional and a touch old school plus some Creole country music that they call Zydeco.

Such is the case with all great artists, but at age 30, Chris Thile has become one of the most unique American musicians of our time. Tune in for excerpts from a solo performance by Mr. Thile at the 2012 Savannah Music Festival, where he wove Bach's G minor sonata into a unique collection of covers (including Josh Ritter and Fiona Apple songs) and original music in a free spirited and masterful performance.
