Mandolin Mondays #216 w/ Special Guest Adam Wright

Rate this Entry
The incredible Adam Wright of the Alabama acoustic super group Act of Congress brings us a tasty original tune played on his 2008 Collings MF for this week's Mandolin Mondays.



Since forming the band Act of Congress in 2008, Adam has toured with the group in Thailand, Oman, Palau, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Philippines, Timor Leste, Bali, Liberia, Jordan, as well as the greater USA. AOC has backed up country music star, Sara Evans and American Idol winner, Taylor Hicks. The band has released two full length albums, two acclaimed Christmas EPs, a live CD/DVD, and the documentary "A Week In The Life."

Adam also makes music under the moniker The Corner Room; an acoustic project that sets passages of the Bible to music. Check out his latest album With His Wounds We Are Healed, here: https://open.spotify.com/album/2RUc0zIXG1aFn7zIQLZrBn

Here's a word from Adam about the video, "The tune is an instrumental that Act of Congress wrote but never recorded (or named). As far as a title, letís go with 'Deep Cut.' The mandolin is a 2008 Collings MF. I have been a proud owner of it all 12 years of itís life. I consider it a lifetime mandolin!"

    Awesome to see this guys again!!
    My wife and I saw The Act of Congress play at the inaugural New Grass Festival, when Sam was given his special praise for originating New Grass.
    This band is WONDERFUL!! Such a full sound. So enthusiastic.
    Their first CD, Declaration, is on regular rotation on the iPod.
    Would love to see them play again.
    FWIW. For a great giggle check out “Five Minutes of Fame” Sure to give you a reason to smile.

    Nice! I like the room sound too Did you pick that spot for the acoustics? I'll look forward to hearing what the band does with that one sometime, but very happy to hear the solo version for now.
