Garden Concert: Mandolin Music and More
September 29, 2017, 6:30 PM
U.S. Mandolin Playing Champion Radim Zenkl will perform an evening of mandolin, mandola, ethnic flutes, didgeridoo, and vocal music in the Conservatory Garden Court of the U.S. Botanic Garden. During the performance, Zenkl will play original music crossing the tracks of folk, bluegrass, jazz, new age, flamenco, gypsy, Irish, and classical music, combined with Czech and eastern European traditional songs and instrumentals. Along the way, he will talk about the specific woods used in the construction of his instruments, as well as his original “Zenkl style” technique, in which a single mandolin sounds like two.
