Barry Mitterhoff at the Fanwood Memorial Library

FANWOOD - On Wednesday, February 27 at 7:30 PM come out to the Fanwood Memorial Library for an evening with Mandolin Master Barry Mitterhoff. Barry will treat us to a not-to-miss-evening of mandolin music that ranges from classical to klezmer - from bluegrass to Brazilian and much more. Barry will be joined by Joe Selly and Dan Weiss on guitars. 

Barry Mitterhoff is a mandolinist who cannot be pigeonholed into one style. He performs a dazzling array of styles that include bluegrass, classical, swing and jazz, and a variety of ethnic styles such as Brazilian, Neapolitan songs, Klezmer and more. He has recorded on the BMG, Sony, Flying Fish, Rounder and other record labels with artists as diverse as Metropolitan Opera tenor Jerry Hadley, Julius LaRosa, Tom Chapin, Hazel Dickens, Tony Trischka and under his own name. He has performed at the White House, the Library of Congress, the Rainbow Room, Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and Alice Tully Hall. He can be heard on the soundtracks of You've Got Mail, Mickey Blue Eyes, Two Family House as well as recording music for the Coen Brothers film, O Brother Where Art Thou. 

Mr. Mitterhoff has toured throughout Western Europe, the former Soviet Union, Czech Republic, Japan, the United States and Canada. Along with his performing and recording activities, he also is active as a mandolin teacher, including at the Fur Peace Ranch. He is now an acclaimed sideman to Jorma Kaukonen and Hot Tuna (Electric and Acoustic). Despite being a world traveler, Barry is a Jersey boy who grew up in Springfield and now makes his home in Scotch Plains.

Be sure to join us for an unforgettable evening of music at the library with a true master of his craft.
