Amazing Mandolinist, Carlo Aonzo
Direct from ITALY – October 8, 7:00 pm
An Italian night to remember. The Carlo Aonzo Trio setting out from Naples shores with the most traditional classical Italian mandolin you’ll ever hear.
Their repertoire lands at the Americas, ranging from the classical, to the Italian songs of the 50s, to swing music, to the more complex rhythms strongly influenced by the United States and South America.
Celebrated mandolin virtuoso, Carlo has toured the world, founded the International Mandolin Academy, has played and recorded with many greats including David Grisman, René Izquierdo and Beppe Gambetta.
This special evening will truly be the most unique and fascinating musical event of great artistic and cultural impact that Mountain Music Parlor has yet presented!
