For our occasional Wednesday afternoon instrumental feature we have this week Andy Leftwich, who is a four time Grammy winning instrumentalist who is probably best known for his fiddle playing which has won a good cluster of awards. So, naturally, this is Andy on mandolin. The tune comes from a while back when Leftwich explains he was “playing with Ricky Skaggs and the Cincinnati Orchestra. The hotel I stayed in that night overlooked the beautiful skyline of Cincinnati, Ohio, so I decided to name the song after it. A lot of the songs I write usually get named after towns or cities that I have visited, and this one seemed to capture the exciting feeling you get when you come to the city.”
