Mandolin Mondays #237 w/ Special Guest Jacob Matthess

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
UK mandolinist and master illustrator Jacob Matthess joins us this week on Mandolin Mondays for an impressive take on Andy Irvine with this Irish medley played on Jacob's powerful Krishot F5 Fern built by Eduard Kristufek in 2002.



Jacob grew up in Northern Ireland and the States, but now lives in Glasgow, Scotland while finishing his university degree. He is not only an incredible musician but has become well known on social media for his bluegrass illustration work. Here are a few of his character drawings of some well known mandolin players.

    I think a 'self portrait' is in order for such fine playing.

    NICE! Of course we come for the mandolin, but the vocals were great! Really enjoyed the whole thing. Nice playing, and that is a fine sounding mando too. Thanks.
