Mandolin Mondays #62 w/ Special Guest Giri Peters

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
Here's my friend Giri Peters doing some tasty picking on the Kenny Smith tune, "Studebaker" with his Northfield 5S Mandolin.



Based in Nashville, TN, Giri is an award-winning mandolinist on the rise in the acoustic roots music world. I met Giri a couple years ago and was already impressed by his musicianship. Since then he's become a force to be reckoned with as a composer, performer, and improviser.

Giri also just recently released a striking solo record called Just Whittlin' Around. The album features playing from Giri, Alan Bibey and several other hot pickers on a selection of original and traditional tunes. You can check out the project here: https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/giripeters

Now, Giri performs on mandolin and fiddle around the Southeast with his sister, Uma, on the clawhammer banjo. Definitely keep an eye on these two in the upcoming years!

    Nice Job! I have also enjoyed the CD, which I picked up at the Frankfort Bluegrass Festival last year. Hopefully we'll see GP there this year too.
