Podcast 225: Sam Bush

Mandolin virtuoso Sam Bush joins us on this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast to talk about Revival: The Sam Bush Story, the recently-released full-length documentary on his life and music. We also talk about “Hoss,” his cherished 1937 Gibson F-5; learn why Sam has never owned a Lloyd Loar mandolin; and hear about his musical upbringing in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Revival is now available for rent or purchase via Amazon.

Longtime FJ readers may remember that Sam graced the cover of the Fretboard Journal #19, in a feature where he and Tim O’Brien interviewed each other.

This week’s episode is sponsored by Lee Valley Tools, Retrofret Vintage Guitars and Lowden Guitars.
