Mandomorphosis: Orville Johnson, Matt Sircely, Scott Schaffer and Michael Connolly
In 2009, producer and musician Scott Schaffer brought together seven mandolin players from across the United States to create a record of creative mandolin music. The resulting project, called Mandomorphosis, is a genre-spanning tour through jazz, bluegrass, folk, and free-spirited improvisation.
Please join us for the project's West Coast CD release of its debut album, 2010.
In attendance will be the Western component of the Mandomorphosis project: Orville Johnson, Matt Sircely, Michael Connolly and Scott Schaffer. Expect a high-energy evening of improvised instrumental music focused on mandolin, but also featuring dobro, fiddle, tenor guitar, and more!
"Intricate.. energetic... intriguing... brilliant... I highly recommend 2010 for its varied musical styles and approaches, creativity and overall sound. 4 Stars (out of 5)

"These cats rock right in the pocket. Progressive bluegrass ala the Bela Fleck ilk with energy and good vibes for all that just keep coming... This is certainly a winner for adult ears on the prowl for something new and different..Hot stuff that just doesnt wear out its welcome."
