Video Premiere: Mr Sun Plays Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite


Mr Sun – the wildly adventurous string band featuring fiddler Darol Anger, mandolin player Joe K. Walsh, guitarist Grant Gordy, and bass player Aidan O’Donnell – is releasing their latest project on December 1, a reinterpretation of Duke Ellington’s arrangement of the Nutcracker Suite.

The project was generously underwritten by the Freshgrass Foundation, who also produced this video with videographer Joe Aidonidis (of Great Sky Media).

The Fretboard Journal is proud to premiere this behind-the-scenes video on the making of this project.

The full album will be out on December 1, but you can preorder it now via this link.
