My guest this week is Andy Wood!

Andy spent most of his childhood playing and competing in bluegrass festivals. Touring the bluegrass circuit with his cousin and grandfather provided Andy with the necessary exposure that helped refine and sharpen his skills. Andy and his cousin held various state championship titles.

At the young age of sixteen, Andy finished second in the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MANDOLIN CONTEST in Winfield, Kansas. Currently touring as a solo guitarist and mandolinist along with working on a host of additional musical projects, Andy is also performing live with his own band promoting JUNKTOWN, an album which showcases his vast musical influences and abilities.

This week’s guest on the podcast is another mandolin legend, Tim O’Brien!

Born in Wheeling, West Virginia on March 16, 1954, Grammy winning singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist Tim O’Brien grew up singing in church and in school, and after seeing Doc Watson on TV, became a lifelong devotee of old time and bluegrass music. Tim first toured nationally with Colorado bluegrass band Hot Rize, who last year marked 40 years as a band. Kathy Mattea scored a country hit with his song Walk The Way The Wind Blows in 1986, and soon more artists like Nickel Creek and Garth Brooks covered his songs. Over the years, Tim has collaborated with his sister Mollie O’Brien, songwriter Darrell Scott, and noted old time musician Dirk Powell, as well as with Steve Earle, Mark Knopfler, Bill Frisell, and Steve Martin.

This week’s guest is mandolin legend Andy Statman!

Andy Statman, one of his generation’s premier mandolinists and clarinetists, thinks of his compositions and performances as “spontaneous American-roots music and personal, prayerful hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz.” This modest man takes for granted that a performer might embody several worlds in his art, and seems humbled by the fact that his music, like his story, is extraordinary.

Support The Mandolins and Beer Podcast HERE

This week’s guest is Lauren Price of The Price Sisters!

Music has always had a resounding presence in the lives of twin sisters Lauren Price Napier and Leanna Price. Growing up, both of their parents sang traditional and old-time country songs. As the sisters grew up hearing duet harmony, they naturally became accustomed to singing together
themselves. Lauren and Leanna were gifted instruments for their eighth birthday and began taking lessons at age nine, though they didn’t take as strong an interest in bluegrass music specifically until their mid-high school years. The girls then began attending as many festivals
and workshops as possible. Both were recipients of Bill Vernon Memorial Scholarships at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in 2014 and attended the annual IBMA conference for the first time that fall. In 2017, Lauren and Leanna each completed their Bachelor degrees in Traditional
Music from Morehead State University.

You can find Lauren on Facebook and Instagram
and be sure to also follow The Price Sisters at their Website, their Facebook and their Instagram
