Based out of Portland, Oregon, Mando Planet is, as you might suspect, based around the mandolin. Not one, but two mandolins played by the duo of Jack Dwyer and Tim Connell. And Mando Planet is not only the name of the dynamic 16-string twosome, but it’s also the name of their latest album.

At the Crandall Library’s Folklife Center in Glens Falls recently, they commanded the attention of the crowd by interweaving their instruments into a captivating blend of harmony and counterpoint. At the library’s ongoing free concert series, Dwyer and Connell fired up a very tasty blend of Irish jigs, roots Americana and singer-songwriter fare, much to the sheer delight of the crowd.

The Crandall Library’s Folklife Center concert series continues at 7pm on Thursday (April 10) with a performance by the Panache Quartet, a fab foursome of fiery female fiddlers – Andrea Beaton, Donna Hébert, Jane Rothfield and Véronique Plasse. Admission is free.
