Bill Bradbury and Gunnar Biggs - MandoBasso

Bill Bradbury and Gunnar Biggs - MandoBasso

MandoBasso is a new release from Bill Bradbury on mandolin and Gunnar Biggs on bass.

Biggs and Bradbury first came together as faculty colleagues working on projects at both Palomar College and Cal State San Marcos. Biggs comes from a strong background in jazz and classical performance, Bradbury from a composition and computer music background. Their mutual love of Irish and traditional American music brought them together in this unusual pairing of mandolin and bass.

MandoBasso performances include new compositions, arrangements of traditional music, classical music repertoire, jazz and ragtime.

A CD release concert/party will take place on Saturday, May 1 at 8:00 p.m. at the New Village Arts Theatre, 2787 B State Street, Carlsbad, California.

Oh, I take it this is not the same Bill Bradbury as the one running in the Oregon Primary,
to be the Democratic party candidate for Governor? ..

Bill is a music teacher/professor at a college (I cannot remember which) in southern California. Nice guy. I met him at 2006 Mandolin Symposium.
