Andrew Marlin released his all-instrumental album Buried in a Cape in 2018, highlighting his mandolin, composition, and tune-writing talents with a first-rate band that includes Eli West on guitar, Christian Sedelmyer on fiddle, and Curt Mullican on upright bass. During a break in the busy travel schedule for Mandolin Orange, Marlin’s hugely popular duo with his wife Emily Franz, the Buried in a Cape band toured the West Coast, including a stop at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, California. Before that show, the band played a blistering version of “Wooden Spoon Over by the Sink” backstage. 

For the gear-curious, Marlin played his 1924 Lloyd Loar Gibson F-5 during the show and he recorded the entire Buried in a Cape album on a 2000 Gilchrist F5, which is now owned by his friend, Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Joe K. Walsh. Marlin sounds great on both instruments!
