Mandolin master Mike Marshall has been blending genres in acoustic music for more than 30 years, performing and recording with players in bluegrass, classical, jazz and Brazilian music - so it's no surprise that Marshall and Meyer have developed a fully realized concept of the mandolin/bass duo, presenting a repertoire that spans the globe. Tune in for highlights from their 2012 performance in the Charles H. Morris Center at the 2012 Savannah Music Festival.

Whether he's writing a bass concerto, performing with </span>Yo-Yo<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Ma, teaching at the Royal Academy of Music, or playing bluegrass with his pals in Nashville, his virtuosity and original compositions have put him in a class by himself. In 2006, the Savannah Music Festival invited Meyer to perform a program of his original compositions with multi-instrumentalists Sam Bush and Mike Marshall, along with violinist and </span>SMF<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Associate Artistic Director Daniel Hope. While his work can be complex to rehearse and play, it is always engaging and optimistic to hear.&nbsp;</span></p><p> Fri, 18 Jan 2013 02:00:00 +0000 22221 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Edgar Meyer Savannah Music Festival: Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain - Part Two http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-bela-fleck-edgar-meyer-zakir-hussain-part-two <p><strong>Airs Thursday, December 6 at 8:00 p.m. &nbsp;</strong>Bassist Edgar Meyer and banjoist Bela Fleck had collaborated for nearly thirty years, but in 2008 when they formed a trio with tabla master Zakir Hussain, they created a small group in which each member offered up original compositions based upon their virtuosity and shared musical ideas.
