Savannah Music Festival: David Grisman Folk-Jazz Trio
Airs Thursday, January 16 at 8 p.m. Though his artistic pursuits are difficult to categorize stylistically, there is no doubt that mandolinist, composer, producer, educator and historian David Grisman has an insatiable appetite for music. Hist idiosyncratic artistic journey has been one of elaboration and refinement, so when he formed a trio in 2011 to explore the common musical roots of folk, country and jazz, it was a simple and logical extension of his musical activity. Tune in to hear highlights from this 2013 SMF performance by the David Grisman Folk-Jazz Trio, featuring his son Samson on bass and Jim Hurst on guitar and vocals.
