I recently had the chance to attend the Carmel Bach Festival and attend a concert by Mike Marshall, noted mandolin player. It was such a treat to sit and listen to classical music blended so effortlessly with the South’s beloved bluegrass, I had to marvel at why the pairing isn’t more common.
In the hands of a master musician, such as Marshall, all music seems truly like the universal language.
I haven’t been able to get this concert out of my head, so when I was looking for a gift for a musically-minded loved one, and discovered that Marshall hosts an online mandolin school, I couldn’t help but think it was the perfect gift!
Mike Marshall tours and plays all over the South and the country, or take a gander at some of his music right from the comfort of your own screen.
