Migration Sketches- Hand Me Down My Mandolin
The National Jazz Museum in Harlem
Tim Porter on mandolin, accompanied by virtuoso guitarist Joe Selly, and internationally acclaimed bassist Santi Debriano return to the NJMH to perform and continue the musical dialogue highlighting the long history and continuing influence of mandolin in Blues, Jazz, and Latin music. By the early twentieth century, the mandolin was well established in the south as an instrument in New Orleans jazz, in rural settings, and in university string ensembles. With the "Great Migration" from the south to the north and west the instrument and its southern-acquired repertoire moved into the urban centers of the north and the far west. Join us as we look at the historical and musical underpinnings of this phenomenon which continues to influence American music. Join the event on Facebook here!
