Here’s a fun project from Sharon Gilchrist, who teaches four mandolin courses on Peghead Nation, and as she self-reports, drinks a lot of coffee to fuel her musical endeavors. Sharon has created a video podcast called Mandos, Cars and Coffee, and has just released the first episode, which features her fellow Peghead Nation instructor Joe K. Walsh and a cool Audi TT. Watch the entire episode above.
Here’s what Sharon has to say about the origins of the Mandos, Cars and Coffee:
“Have you ever drank a decent amount of coffee and experienced one GREAT idea after another flooding your mind? Of course you have. But how many of these flights of fantasy have you ever followed through on? My new video series Mandos, Cars and Coffee is exactly that – a caffeine-fueled, “what if?” brought to life. Jump on this train of manifestation and watch this video to hear about the inception of Mandos, Cars and Coffee and to catch a slice of Episode #1: my interview with fellow mandolinist, Joe K. Walsh.”
NOTE: Mandos, Cars and Coffee is co-produced by Sharon Gilchrist and Darol Anger. I do not profess to know anything about film-making, editing or audio engineering. I am just a mandolin player making a video – Sharon Gilchrist
