  • $13.50


Gorman is a good Monroe-style mandolin picker who does a very nice job on these 13 tunes that originally came out on an obscure Marimac label cassette in 1991. Most of the tunes utilize simple guitar and bass backing. Gorman—who names Pee Wee Lambert, Everett Lilly and Frank Wakefield as influences, obviously has great respect for the genre and does it justice. Tunes include JENNY LIND POLKA, SENECA SQUARE DANCE, UTPIKE WALTZ, WATSON BLUES and 5 MILES FROM TOWN.
