Mandolinist Akira Otsuka from the renowned Japanese bluegrass band Bluegrass 45 joins us this week for an original tune played on the infamous John Duffey Gibson F12 mandolin.



In addition to his work with Bluegrass 45, Akira has curated and recorded a brand new tribute album to the past legend John Duffey of the Country Gentlemen and the Seldom Scene. This project features new recordings of John's music featuring an all-star bluegrass cast. Hear Akira talk about the project here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nyelehiyYE&app=desktop

    It's so refreshing to hear a master that isn't trying to impress you with a blizzard of 64th notes. The beauty of this piece is it's quiet simplicity.
