David Benedict - Into The True Country

David Benedict - Into The True Country

Into The True Country is the title of a collection of all original instrumental compositions by mandolinist David Benedict.

Benedict is a southeastern based performer, composer, and instructor seeking to blend tradition and innovation through his music. Over the years, his broad tastes have led him to push the conventional boundaries of the mandolin by exploring a variety of musical styles.

On the recording Benedict is supported by BB Bowness on banjo, Samson Grisman on Bass, Christian Sedelmyer on 5-string fiddle, and Ross Martin on Guitar. Additionally, Matt Flinner acted as producer.



From Into The True Country, listen to Naptime.

This album is phenomenal. It's lyrical, gorgeous acoustic instrumental music of the highest caliber. Compares favorably with the likes of John Reischman, Emory Lester, and Strength in Numbers. Highly recommended.

Just bought this album on Bandcamp after watching David's phenomenal chord melody playing on his "Mandolin Mondays" blog.
Highly recommended, I can only agree with the comments made above.
In addition to being a great player he seems a very nice guy. I requested the transcriptions of his blog arrangements and he sent them within the day. Now I just need to practise for about a 20 years to sound half as good as he does...
