Sarah Jarosz at Shrewsbury Folk Festival – Complete Concert

The complete concert from the Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2017 with Sarah Jarosz is available in the youtube channel of the Shrewsbury Folk Festival. Sarah Jarosz is one of my favorite young American mandolin players.

Sarah plays her octave mandolin, mandolin, banjo and guitar. The setlist included many songs from her last album “Undercurrent”. I enjoyed the concert very much!

Madeira Mandolin Festival – Festival Internacional de Bandolins da…

I have recently started to collect videos with the mandolin orchestras from Madeira. Madeira has a long tradition of mandolin orchestras.

In 2016 the first Madeira Mandolin Festival took place. I have found several great videos made during this festival with the Edu Miranda Trio, Luís Peixoto and Norberto Cruz.

Edu Miranda Trio is playing some great Choros, Luís Peixoto plays two solo pieces on the cavaquinho, and Norberto Cruz plays a Sonata by Carlos Seixas.
