• Buddy Merriam Back Roads Mandolin, Vol. Two

    Traditional bluegrass mandolin stalwart Buddy Merriam has announced the release of Buddy Merriam Back Roads Mandolin, Vol. Two.

    The spiral bound book with accompanying CD contains 32 original compositions from the author all set in standard notation and tablature, all from his last four recordings along with six new pieces. Included in the collection is "Blue Grass Time," the theme song to Merriam's long running popular radio program on WUSB 90.1 FM.

    Transcribed by master mandolinist Lou Martin, the book includes photographs from Merriam's private collection.

    Buddy Merriam and Back Roads are regional bluegrass band favorites on the East Coast and champions of the music and mandolin style of Bill Monroe, performing continuously now for over 35 years.
