I am currently reviewing a list of songs and tunes that I have collected for my band Blackberry Jam. A beautiful instrumental for the mandolin is A Prairie Jewel by John Reischman. John Reischman is one of the best sounding mandolin players that I know. His album North of the Border belongs to my all time favorite mandolin albums.
John Reischman : A Prairie Jewel
“A Prairie Jewel” is from John Reischman’s exquisite 2013 release, “Walk Along John”. His website is http://www.johnreischman.com “One of the most tasteful and accomplished mandolinists anywhere.” – Acoustic Musician
A live video of A Prairie Jewel can be found on the website of Peghead Nation:
My version as a Mandolin & Guitar duet:
I have not found any TABs for this tune, but as it is a slow tune it is easy to learn from the videos.
