Two Trios in Concert
The Mandolin Society of Philadelphia presents the Connecticut-based Hampton Trio and the Philadelphia-based Sycamore Muse Trio in concert together in two regional venues on October 7 and 8.
The Hampton Trio includes Mark Davis (mandolin), Robert Margo (mandola), and Beverly Davis. The Hampton Trio performs original music and arrangements for ensemble of mandolin, mandola, and classical guitar. Inspired by the groundbreaking work of groups such as Trio Nuovo (Japan) and Trio Chamorro (Spain), the Hampton Trios goal is to popularize and add to the existing repertoire for this instrumentation. In addition to their trio repertoire, the groups programs often include classical guitar duos by Mark and Beverly Davis, and mandolin solos by Robert A. Margo. Mark Davis conducts the acclaimed New American Mandolin Ensemble (NAME) and the Providence Mandolin Orchestra (PMO). Beverly Davis and Robert Margo are members of NAME and PMO.
Formed in 2011, the mandolin and guitar duo Sycamore Muse performs regularly at Chef Joey Baldinos acclaimed eateries: Zeppoli, in Collingswood, NJ, and the Palizzi Social Club, in South Philadelphia. Joe Todaro and Mark Linkins who share mandolin and guitar duties also perform for weddings, receptions, art openings, and winery events throughout the Delaware Valley. The Sycamore Muse Trio includes the addition of internationally renowned accordionist Joe Soprani, also known to accordion enthusiasts as "Dizzy Fingers."

The October 8 concert will be presented at 3:00 PM at the Ethical Society Building on Rittenhouse Square, in Center City Philadelphia.
