Postby londonmandolinfestival » Sat Oct 17, 2009 10:15 pm

Due to the success of the 2009 Festival concert the London Mandolin Festival returns
Uniting voluntary plucked string players all over London in one mass orchestra
Promoting plucked string instruments and the ailing Mandolin and Guitar groups
Showcasing the range and beauty of music for Mandolin Orchestra
From Folk to Klezmer to Contemporary, Japanese to Cuban

The theme for the 2010 Second London Mandolin Festival is "Rumba and Accordion"
Players taking part will expect to perform pieces featuring the rumba rhythm
and be accompanied by an Accordion soloist

The festival still needs more players! If you can play either

* Mandolin, Mandola or Mandocello
* Classical Guitar
* Acoustic Bass Guitar or Double Bass
