Someone I made sure I wanted to get in the first few interviews we've been doing since late last Fall was mandolin and bluegrass legend Roland White. Roland has agreed to be the subject of one of our future interviews where our forum members ask the questions, and I'm thrilled he has accepted our offer.
Think about what Roland has accomplished in the music world. Not sure I can get close to mentioning it all, but for starters, considerable stints with the Nashville Bluegrass Band, Alan Munde and Country Gazette, the Kentucky Colonels, a role as the guitarist for Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys, now leader of his own Roland White Band, and a real favorite for workshops and camps.
But enough already. Here's a chance to ask some special questions from someone that has a really remarkable musical career, and someone that is instantly recognizable with their own voice on the mandolin. Sort of an American original, and one of the nicest guys you'll meet if you have the chance.
And please... dispense with the "what kind of picks, strings" questions. All interviews have a section where we cover all the fundamental gear for you.
