Mandolin Mondays #69 w/ Special Guest Tristan Scroggins

Rating: 2 votes, 3.50 average.
Tristan Scroggins is with us this week for a solo mandolin rendition of a Bela Fleck tune on his power house Stellings S-5 mandolin.



Based in the mid-west, Tristan is one of the leading young, creative voices on the mandolin today. He plays full time with the prolific Jeff Scroggins & Colorado band—they have been called one of the hardest working bluegrass bands on the scene. And when he’s not too busy touring, Tristan writes his own blog about the nuances of bluegrass history and sound called The Why Lonesome Sound: http://nerdgrass.blogspot.com/

Most recently, Tristan has recorded a duo album with fiddler Alisa Rose entitled GRANA, set to be released on May 23rd. It features a collection of creative tunes and fresh improvisations, and it’s definitely worth checking out: https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/c...ins-Rose-GRANA

Here’s Tristan with a few words about the tune: “This is a tune written by Bela Fleck for his 1984 album Double Time which was all duets. The tune is called ‘Another Morning.’ This one was a duet with Jerry Douglas. I actually originally learned this from a live recording of Bela doing it solo at telluride and i played that version in my high school talent show. But for this i actually went and tried to arrange both the banjo and dobro parts to be played on the mandolin. This is filmed in Amsterdam if thats of any interest.”
