Mandolin Mondays #201 w/ Special Guest Caleb Edwards

Rate this Entry
Nashville-based mandolinist Caleb Edwards of the bands Lateral Blue and Runa joins us on Mandolin Mondays this week for a tasty original tune played on his 2017 Northfield Big Mon mandolin.



Caleb got his start in music growing up in Metamora, Indiana. He first found the mandolin at age twelve and went on to graduate from the Kentucky School of Bluegrass and Traditional Music in 2014. He then moved to Nashville to join the bluegrass band Fireball Mail who soon after won the 2016 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest.

Now Caleb plays with the up-and-coming young progressive bluegrass band Lateral Blue and part-time with the Celtic fusion band Runa. Lateral Blue just released a beautiful holiday album called This Christmas. Check it out here: https://open.spotify.com/album/1Vz3Scr0pzlwS664FKkP5j

Here's a word from Caleb about the tune, "I really enjoy playing around with simple melodies that have unique phrases and this is the result that came out of playing around with that idea. It sort of reminds me of the fun, crooked old time tunes that have mixed meters and odd note placements. I added a little extra salt when I re-harmonized the melody. I named this tune after my favorite, little Irishman, Liam de Barra"

Caleb is offering a tab/notation transcription of the music in this video. Contact him through his website for more info: http://www.calebplaysmandolin.com/

    I have to say, one of the best things for me about Mandolin Cafe. I like the variety of musicians you have presented and
    continue to present.
