Mandolin Mondays #409 w/ Special Guest Chris Silver

Rate this Entry
This week on Mandolin Mondays we're joined by mandolinist Chris Silver playing an original tune "Castle Danger" on his 2015 Liebers mandolin.

Chris Silver is best known throughout the country as a virtuoso flatpick guitar and mandolin player and
can be heard at festivals, theaters, and clubs and radio shows across the globe. Formerly of the bands
Stoney Lonesome, Tangled Roots, and the Kate Mackenzie Band, Silver has taken his Roots and
Americana music to new levels through his solo appearances and shows his own band, The Chris Silver
Band. Although he has a deep appreciation for traditional roots music, his sound doesn’t stop there.
Silver’s music stretches beyond the boundaries of traditional folk to include jazz, blues, alt country, indie
and classic rock styles. As a songwriter, Silver takes his listeners through a landscape of experience and
place. His lyrics are thought provoking and his songs reflect a life that has been filled with challenges
and rewards.

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then...

Happy Picking!
