Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
This week on Mandolin Mondays we're joined by California mandolinist and music professor Joti Rockwell, for an impressive 11 minute performance of Bach's C major Fugue BWV 1005 on his Heiden A-style Standard model made in 2011.

Joti Rockwell is a music professor at Pomona College in Claremont, California. Originally from the Washington, DC area, he is a multi-instrumentalist and performer of American roots music, rock, bluegrass, classical concert music, and Balinese gamelan. He has recorded professionally and toured across the United States playing guitar, keyboard, theremin, mandolin-family instruments, and, more recently, pedal steel guitar. He teaches courses and does scholarly research related to music theory, music analysis, popular music, and connections between music and mathematics. He can be heard playing with a variety of musical groups around Claremont and Los Angeles, and sometimes performs outside of the area as well.

As always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then...

Happy Picking!

    Strange sound. A good mandolin with a good player can do more.
