Mandolin Mondays #285 w/ Special Guest Leanne Thorose

Rate this Entry
Leanne Thorose of the bands Midnight Skyracer and Sapphire Storm joins us this week on Mandolin Mondays all the way from London, England to play an original tune called "The Wood Road" paired with the classic "St Anne's Reel" both performed on her beautiful custom Thorose mandolin built by her father Cedric Thorose.



Leanne has been a touring musician for over 10 years and has made appearances in a number of different bands and theatre projects including the critically acclaimed Irish Dance show 'Essence of Ireland' as their lead Fiddle player where she completed tours around the UK with shows in Qatar and Johannesburg, South Africa. She currently sings lead vocals and plays mandolin in the all female IBMA Nominated Bluegrass band Midnight Skyracer--the band released their first album Fire in 2018 and were signed to Island / Universal Records in 2020 where they released their second album Shadows On The Moon.

    Great stuff Leanne, thanks! Really like the sound of the mando as well. Hoping to catch Midnight Skyracer on the continent when you start touring again.
