Returning to Mandolin Mondays this week, we're joined by The Appalachian Mandolin Trio Featuring Owen Parker playing an original composition called "Seventh Tune" off of their brand new album that's out today. Mandolins used on the recording include a Kimble A, Dearstone F-5, Ellis F5 Reserve, Derrington Gibson Master Model (formally owned by Hershel Sizemore).

The Appalachian Mandolin Trio has announced an August 21st release of their first original album!, Blast Off... On the recording, the Trio, along with 10-year old, Owen Parker, play all original instrumentals.

This project features all "new acoustic" originals. It is a dense representaion of the trio's love for the mandolin and a tribute to their diverse styles and sounds. The debut original album was recorded in a studio setting in Asheville, NC. Nicholas Dauphinais, Robert Thornhill, and Ben Parker make up the original trio, this time with Ben Parker's son, Owen. It is available on all media platforms today!

The Trio features Nick Dauphinais - Academy for the Arts Teacher in Asheville, performed and recorded with the Larry Stephenson Band; Jim Lauderdale; Bobby Hicks, Roland White and the Mountain Faith Band.
