December 11, 2017: Isaac Eicher is with us this week on Mandolin Mondays to play an original tune on his lovely Engelmann Spruce top 2015 Heiden Mandolin.
Originally from Tulsa, OK, Isaac is now based in Music City–Nashville, TN. He started out cutting his teeth in the jazz/swing scene with local Tulsa bands like Mischievous Swing, and eventually found his way to other genres such as bluegrass and choro. In 2006, he won the National Mandolin Championship in Winfield, KS, and he returned in 2017 to take the prize again (the tune in this video was one of the pieces Isaac played in the competition). These days you can hear him on the road with Rebecca Frazier Hit & Run in addition to many other artists.
Most recently, Isaac has been working on a full-length album of original jazz-inspired tunes. Stay tuned for more news about the record in the New Year.

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then…
