May 22, 2017: For this week’s Mandolin Mondays, I’m thrilled to have a special video of Nashville-based multi-instrumentalist Rory Hoffman test driving his brand new Voight 2-point mandolin with an incredible improvised blues.
Rory’s inimitable and virtuosic playing across a plethora of different instruments and genres has made him somewhat of a Nashville legend. Over the years he has toured, performed, and recorded with such musicians as Ricky Skaggs, Kathy Mattea, John Cowan, Kasey Musgraves, and many more. His technical artistry and mastery of improvisation shine through in this impromptu composition.
In this video, Rory is playing his gorgeous new 2-point mandolin that he ordered from luthier Dan Voight. Also in Nashville, Dan is a talented builder who makes top-notch instruments at a competitive price. Contact him here for more info about his instruments: http://voightmandolins.com/
