Tim Connell – Art of the Mandolin
An intimate evening of Bach, Beatles, Brazil and more…
Tim has also spent many years putting together a set of solo arrangements for the mandolin, from Brazilian choros to Irish jigs, from Beatles to Broadway. Tim couples these flights of virtuosic picking with heartfelt American songs, giving audiences an intimate window into his virtuosic yet emotional style and his deep passion for music and life.
Tim Connell has created a sophisticated and original style on the mandolin. Regarded as one of the top North American interpreters of the Brazilian choro style on the mandolin, Tim has his own unique voice on the instrument, described in a Mandolin Magazine cover story as “fiery and energetic, soulful and evocative.” Tim’s latest releases include “June Apple”, a nationally-noted album of Bluegrass fiddle tunes with guitarist Eric Skye, and “MandAlone”, a collection of original solo mandolin arrangements including his popular arrangement of “Here Comes the Sun”.
