The Blues Room #394, 7 August 2013
Muddy Waters came to mind first when I wondered what I might present in this episode. Then almost instantly I thought of the mandolin and how much I love Johnny Young's Southside Band recordings. So here tis' ... the first of three episodes brought to you by the letter M. M is is BLUES MANDOLIN. My guest tonight is Jimi Hocking of Victoria Australia. A multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist who recently came out here to New Zealand, so bummed that I missed him! Aw well, next time for sure. I'll have Rich Del Grosso, six times nominee for Blues Music Awards: Best Instrumentalist-Mandolin(2006-2012), and winner of the 2009 acoustic album of the year award for "Live From Bluesville", on a show soon too so be sure to come back for that! Enjoy!
