Sharon Gilchrist and John Reischman: “The Road to Malvern”
 
A great mandolin duet from two masters and members of Peghead Nation's illustrious mandolin instruction staff.

Sharon Gilchrist and John Reischman were at the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, California, last year, and before their concert with Bill EvansCalifornia Banjo Extravaganza, they played a rousing mandolin duet of “The Road to Malvern” in the Freight’s lobby. 

Sharon, John, and Peghead Nation co-founder Scott Nygaard recorded this tune for their album, The Harmonic Tone Revealers. “The Road to Malvern” was written by fiddler Jim Childress, who named the tune after the town in Arkansas where his wife was raised.

John Reischman joined the Peghead Nation mandolin teaching staff in early 2017, with a course that focuses on his original tunes as well as some of his favorite old-time, new acoustic, and roots tunes. John is one of the most well-respected mandolin players around, tours extensively with his band the Jaybirds, and teaches at many of the most popular workshops and camps offered in the US and Canada.

Sign up now for John’s Melodic Mandolin Tunes course on Peghead Nation.
