Jack Dwyer & Tim Connell - Mando Planet

Jack Dwyer & Tim Connell - Mando Planet

Portland, Ore. — The mandolin duet of Jack Dwyer & Tim Connell have announced their debut recording, Planet Mando, two mandolins recorded live in one room.

Jack and Tim met in 2006 at a Centrum mandolin workshop hosted by Mike Marshall in Port Townsend, Washington. The two connected immediately and began playing together in an on and off partnership that has led to tours of Alaska, California, and Northwest, and now a debut CD.

"Tim and Jack have gathered their handsome talents, creative energy and wide musical tastes and honed it all into a collection of clear and concise gems in these mandolin duets. Whether playing an Irish Jig, Brazilian Choro or improvising freely on one of their original tunes, the music always has focus and authenticity, never pushing their instruments too far or trying to be bigger than life. What else is music?"

 — Mike Marshall

Listen to Dai Ndiine Mukoma from the recording Mando Planet.

Thanks for sharing this. I listened to the sample track and bought it right away. Really great!

I got it from CDBaby because that is the service that puts the most $ in the artists' pocket, outside of buying directly from them. Interesting study about that: .
