Tonight Boulevard Music presents two virtuosos on their respective instruments.
Awesome mandolinist Evan Marshall with classic arrangements from Beatle tunes to Vivaldi. What sounds like a small choir of mandolins playing bass lines, chordal accompaniment, and tremolo melodies is in fact nothing except Evan Marshall all by himself. Which would not mean much in this Age of the Overdub except for one astounding fact: Marshall plays all this music live, at once, on one mandolin, with no overdubs at all. That’s four tiny pairs of strings and one flatpick, plus a stray finger or ten.
These feats of the impossible are something like what Chet Atkins did on guitar — Atkins, in fact, commended Marshall as “one of the few great musicians of our time.”
Plus great flatpicker Phil Boroff who learned directly from flatpicking/bluegrass legend Clarence White. More tasty traditional guitar licks than you can imagine. A phenomenal flatpicker as well as fingerstyle blues player and clawhammer/old-timey banjo player.
