Carlos Aonzo, classical and bluegrass mandolinist available for Boston-area house/civic concert Saturday, 5/26
notloB Folk Concerts' usual venues are the Loring-Greenough House and Unity Somerville, but sometimes we are presented with opportunities to present world-class musicians for whom, due to venue non-availability or other reasons, we need to seek alternative venues.
Such is the case with Carlo Aonzo. A Berklee professor has informed me Italy's most famous classical mandolinist will be in town Saturday, May 26. Carlo has a following in the bluegrass world because he won the national mandolin championship in Winfield, Kansas in the 90s.
If you have a large space in your home (30+) and would be interested in hosting a house concert, or are affiliated with with a civic group that might be presenting him, please contact me off-list.
