Savannah Music Festival: Chris Thile, Mike Marshall & Caterina Lichtenberg - Part Two

Airs Thursday, Thursday, November 21 at 8 p.m. At the turn of the 20th century when the mandolin became popular in America, a man named Orville Gibson changed its shape and marketability. 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 Thile and Caterina Lichtenberg, with special guest Sarah Jarosz.

Savannah Music Festival: Chris Thile, Mike Marshall & Caterina Lichtenberg - Part One

Airs Thursday, Thursday, November 14 at 8 p.m. When mandolins began evolving from the lute family in Italy during the 17th and 18th centuries, they were designed with a round back or bowl back in what was known as the Neopolitan style. By the end of the 19th 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 mandolinists in our time: Chris Thile, Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg.

Savannah Music Festival: Chris Thile Live

Airs Thursday, June 27 at 8 p.m. Every now and then a musician comes along with an artistic conception that is so original, he/she is incapable of sounding like anyone else. 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.
