Rate this Entry
This week on Mandolin Mondays, New Zealand mandolinist Sam Frangos-Rhodes brings the heat on this original tune played on his David Harvey 2012 Gibson custom F-5L Custom Fern.



Sam began playing fiddle at the age of 6 and has developed his love of bluegrass by watching the NZ bluegrass greats The Hamilton County Bluegrass Band. Now he's branched out to guitar and mandolin, and has become a core part of several NZ-based bluegrass bands himself.

He's made a name for himself playing with the family band RhodeWorks--an award-winning bluegrass folk band who play fast paced, high energy traditional and original music. And Sam's other band You, Me, Everybody takes their inspiration from a range of musical styles, including bluegrass, jazz, country, and blues to create a dynamic sound that celebrates the best of Americana. The've just released a new EP--check it out here: https://open.spotify.com/album/1BRwSxI1o6splxO2BTzetT
