Mandolin Mondays #101 w/ Special Guest Thomas Cassell

Rating: 2 votes, 3.00 average.
From Circus No. 9, Thomas Cassell brings us the good notes with his solo take on this old Sam Bush tune "Sapporo"--played fittingly on a Gibson Sam Bush Model mando.



Thomas is one of the hardest working mandolin players on the scene today! In 2016 and 2017 he was selected to participate in Mike Marshall's prestigious Acoustic Music Seminar. Around this time, Thomas hit the studio to record his first EP entitled Mellifluous. Check it out here: https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/thomascassell Also in 2016, Thomas won the Rockygrass Mandolin Contest where he was awarded the Sam Bush Model that he currently plays.

Soon after, he helped found the new progressive acoustic group Circus No. 9--an exciting band with extensive chops and creativity. Though the group has only been around for a year, they've played over 100 shows and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Check out their live shows coming up net year!

Happy Picking!

    Super shortened version. Sapporo is about 18 mins. long.

    Nice tune. I posted this awhile back, but if you want to hear real Japanese (or Japanese American) music on mandolin, check out this short documentary "Remembering Rafu Mandolin Club": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TY6Eg0HWs8
