Airs Thursday, May 1 at 8 p.m. What do you get when you put five of the best mandolinists from the United States together on one stage? We weren't sure until the spring of 2005 when we hired David Grisman, Don Stiernberg, Mike Marshall, Tony Williamson, and Sam Bush for an evening of musical fireworks. In this episode, we listen to more virtuosic mandolin playing in the second installment of Mando Madness.
Airs Thursday, November 8 at 8:00 p.m. When pianist Bill Charlap arrived in Savannah with his trio to play three sets of music over the course of one evening, he made it emphatically clear that he had no intention of repeating himself. Possessing a profound knowledge of music and the American songbook, he delivered four hours of ballads, blues and enough good hot swing to satisfy every patron in attendance. Tune in to hear Bill Charlap's Trio with special guests Frank Wess and Slide Hampton, recorded live at the Savannah Music Festival.
