New Podcast: An ArtistWorks Holiday Celebration

 

In this week’s special holiday episode of the ArtistWorks Music Series podcast, our co-founder Patricia Butler sits down to chat with seven of our ArtistWorks instructors: mandolin master Mike Marshall, shred guitar virtuoso Paul Gilbert, world-renowned fingerstyle guitarist Martin Taylor, Grammy Award-winning harmonica player Howard Levy, bluegrass banjo icon Tony Trischka, saxophone giant Eric Marienthal, and IBMA Award-winning mandolinist Sierra Hull. Together, these master musicians explore and perform some of the most meaningful music that inspires their holiday season, and share their favorite holiday memories as well. The show is available wherever you listen to podcasts, or you can listen here at ArtistWorks.

Every year as the holidays approach, many of us have that one experience or ritual, or maybe a  special food or beverage, that signifies the start of the season. For some, including many of our ArtistWorks instructors, hearing or playing specific holiday songs accomplishes just that.

 

“I was lucky enough to record an album with my bandmates in Trio Globo and the great Jewish cantor Alberto Mizrahi,” explains Howard Levy. “The album consists of half Hannukah music and half Passover music. I often feel the need to listen to the album around those holidays. They kind of signify those times for me.”

 

For other members of our ArtistWorks family, the holidays not only represent a festive, joyous time of year, they also signify the beginning of their musical careers and harken back to memories of learning their instruments and developing their passion for music.

 

“Back in 1963, for Christmas, my parents bought me my very first banjo,” explains Tony Trischka. “On Christmas day, I woke up, and under the tree there it was—a Christy long neck 5-string. That was an exciting Christmas for me, to say the least.”
