Mandolin Mondays #292 w/ Special Guests Table for Two

Rate this Entry
This week on Mandolin Mondays we're joined by the amazing European bluegrass duo Table for Two for a medley of 4 incredible original tunes played on their Northfield F5M Big Mon and Capek A5 mandolins.



Table for Two is the duo project of Signe Borch (The Tenderhearted) from Denmark and Thierry Schoysman (Rawhide and The Sons of Navarone) from Belgium.

What started in May 2016 as a marathon traditional bluegrass jam session with guitar, banjo and two-part harmony singing, has evolved into a repertoire with ingredients from various styles and genres (Bill Keith banjo tunes,# Everly Brother duets, and Beatles arrangements, to mention a few).

Since Signe picked up the mandolin in summer 2018, the duo has been absorbed in playing mandolins in close harmony. The growing repertoire of mandolin duets now consists of 27 tunes: Bluegrass traditionals and compositions by their mandolin heroes David Grisman, John Reischman, and JS Bach(!), but also their own compositions.


This video is a medley of 4 original compositions:

Life’s too short... for ironing (Thierry)
Mont des Arts (Signe)
The Cherry Tree Hornpipe (Signe)
The Carrot Cake Calypso (Thierry)

A word from from the two about this duo, "This is a love story: a fairy tale with mandolins and a happy ending!"

Happy Picking!
David

    The Price was at my home in Belgium. The video was made in Denmark, where Signe lives.
    At festivals we usually play with the Price and the Northfield.
