Savannah Music Festival LIVE 942 – Mike Marshall & Caterina Lichtenberg

The history of the mandolin goes back to 17th and 18th century Italy, when the instrument evolved from the lute family. Over time, the mandolin developed into primarily three types: the Neopolitan or round-backed mandolin, the carved top mandolin and the flat-backed mandolin. Whether it is used in western classical music, Brazilian music, bluegrass and modern American styles, the mandolin remains a wonderfully unique instrument. In this episode, we listen to a 2016 SMF concert called “The World of the Mandolin” featuring Associate Artistic Director Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg.
