Mandolin Magic at the Cranford Community Center
If you’re a mandolin enthusiast, then you already know his name. If you are like most people, and aren’t even really sure of what a mandolin IS, then you’ll probably enjoy his music, anyway. (And no . . . it’s not a small orange packaged in slices with syrup in a cup.)
On Thursday, July 18th, at 7:30 PM, the Friends of the Cranford Public Library are hosting acclaimed mandolinist Barry Mitterhoff at the Cranford Cranford Community Center (220 Walnut Avenue). Mr. Mitterhoff has earned quite the reputation with his craft, having recorded on a number of labels with an eclectic list of artists, ranging from Metropolitan Opera tenor Jerry Hadley to ballad singer Tom Chapin. He has performed at the Library of Congress, the Rainbow Room, Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, and even the White House. His music is featured on a variety of movie soundtracks, including “You’ve Got Mail” and “ Mickey Blue Eyes.” These days, he keeps busy working alongside Jorma Kaukonen and Hot Tuna. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcFeeUH32Jo
Mr. Mitterhoff will be accompanied by guitarist Joe Selby. There is no charge for admission, the parking lot is free, and music lovers of all ages are welcome to come and enjoy a pleasant evening! And NO, there will not be any small oranges served . . . . . .
