Episode 181 - Bob Knysz Interview
This episode will introduce you to one of the movers and shakers in the mandolin world. Bob Knysz is an accomplished bluegrass musician and is also a founder of the Atlanta Mandolin Orchestra.
We discuss his introduction to the mandolin, his experiences in the Chicago area, taking lessons from the great Jethro Burns, attending Bean Blossom, his relocation to Georgia in the early 80's, the beginnings of the South Eastern Bluegrass Association, the Atlanta Mandolin Orchestra, The Classical Mandolin Society of America, and his involvement with a number of bluegrass groups. I know you will enjoy meeting Bob Knysz.
