Long time leader of Buddy Merriam & Back Roads steps out with a new sound performing his original mandolin compositions with double mandolins in harmony, acoustic guitar & bass. Along with many of Buddy’s most requested tunes from his 6 Lily Pad Records CD’s and his “Back Roads Mandolin” book he’ll be playing some newer compositions that have influences of bluegrass, jazz, classical and rock.
Come on out for a powerful night of mandolin music. Buddy’s mandolin was built for him by master mandolin/guitar maker John Monteloene from Islip.
"Buddy Merriam recently brought his new show, The Mandolin Experience, to North Shore Public Library. His longstanding reputation as a fine musician brought in a large audience that enthusiastically tapped their toes to Buddy's lively tunes. I whole heartedly recommend The Mandolin Experience as a concert that will be enjoyed by music lovers of all ages." ~Marcia P.Johnson, North Shore Public Library, Shoreham, NY
