David Grisman & Frank VignolaMarvelous mandolin innovator David Grisman and guitar virtuoso Frank Vignola fill our listening room with beautiful melodies, virtuoso musicianship, and plentiful good vibes as they serve up unique versions of some of their favorite jazz classics from the "great American songbook", spotlighting selections from the recent duo CD, Frank 'n' Dawg.
 
Forging his own musical path in his own inimitable way, David is known far and wide for his "dawg" music, a jubilant, highly intricate, harmonically advanced hybrid of so many different stylistic influences (swing, bluegrass, Latin, jazz, gypsy, to name a few) that he had to invent the name for it. In addition to his own renowned groups like David Grisman Quintet, Old and In the Way, and the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, David has recorded with Jerry Garcia, Stephan Grapelli, and many more.
 
One of the world's truly extraordinary guitarists, Frank's jaw-dropping technique has made him the guitarist of choice for many of the world's top musicians,including Ringo Starr, Donald Fagen, Wynton Marsalis, and the late guitar legend Les Paul, who included Frank in his "Five Most Admired Guitar List." Raised in the New York area, Frank has explored a range of musical genres over the years, leading jazz projects like Appel Direct, and playing with the likes of Donald Fagen, Queen Latifah, and Mark O'Connor.
