Andy Leftwich “Over Cincinnati” – Listen to the Bluegrass goodness

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.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
