Wintergrass: three amazing mandolins

I wanted to get up a quick item about the amazing Mandolins at Midnight special concert at Wintergrass last night--er, this morning. It was the first time that Chris Thile has played together with Hamilton de Holanda, the Brazilian choro master. With Mike Marshall as the multi-cultural intermediary, the results were extraordinary--a true one-of-a-kind treat. I'll have more to say when I write up my Wintergrass items within the next few days. If you weren't there and you appreciate improvisational instrumental artistry, this is one FestivaLink performance worth putting up the money to add to your collection. Wow!

The full three mandolins write-up is here.
