Tim Connell, mandolin
Tim Connell has created a sophisticated and original global style on the mandolin. Widely regarded as one of the top North American interpreters of the Brazilian choro style on the mandolin, Tim has his own unique voice on the instrument, described in a Mandolin Magazine cover story as “fiery and energetic, soulful and evocative.” Tim’s latest releases include June Apple, a nationally noted album of bluegrass fiddle tunes with guitarist Eric Skye, and MandAlone, a collection of original solo mandolin arrangements – including his popular setting of The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun.”
The Seattle Mandolin Orchestra digs into its Latin and American libraries for this concert. Heirs of a century-old mandolin ensemble tradition, the orchestra features the entire mandolin family of instruments – including mandolin, mandola, mandocello, and mandobass. They serve the Puget Sound community through performance, recordings, outreach, musical instruction, and publishing.
