Mandolin Mondays #73 w/ Special Guest Rory Hoffman

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
For this week's Mandolin Mondays, I'm thrilled to have a special video of Nashville-based multi-instrumentalist Rory Hoffman test driving his brand new Voight 2-point mandolin with an incredible improvised blues.



Rory's inimitable and virtuosic playing across a plethora of different instruments and genres has made him somewhat of a Nashville legend. Over the years he has toured, performed, and recorded with such musicians as Ricky Skaggs, Kathy Mattea, John Cowan, Kasey Musgraves, and many more. His technical artistry and mastery of improvisation shine through in this impromptu composition.

In this video, Rory is playing his gorgeous new 2-point mandolin that he ordered from luthier Dan Voight. Also in Nashville, Dan is a talented builder who makes top-notch instruments at a competitive price. Contact him here for more info about his instruments: http://voightmandolins.com/

    My usual response to something like this is "Holy Sh*t!" But being (or trying to be) a more mature musician I'll say the Rory is remarkable. And my remarks are that he is a rare talent. Disabled or not, I assume he is blind, he really understands the style of music and performs it with style and grace.

    Adding my votes for both "Wow!" and "That was fun!", and I just love that whistling too. Thanks Rory!

    Feels like a groove from the Old Aquarium Rescue Unit circa 1994. I bet Col. Bruce would have enjoyed this.
