Backyard Green Films present Herschel Sizemore: Mandolin in B
San Diego, Calif. — Backyard Green Films has announced the release of a new documentary film entitled Herschel Sizemore: Mandolin in B.
On the evening of February 19, 2012 bluegrass stars came out for a special benefit concert in Virginia and the music community that supported the event captures the spirit of the man being feted, bluegrass mandolin legend Herschel Sizemore.
The film centers around events of the evening concert.
Herschel and his wife Joyce were both diagnosed with cancer on the same day in the Fall of 2011.
Director Rick Bowman with his producing partner Bill Perrine shot numerous hours of footage and traveled many miles to make the film. Rick Bowman says "it was for the love of the music and to honor this great musician that brought him into this story."
He hopes that other people will see the film and learn more about this unique individual and the influence that he had on so many of today's mandolin players.
