Don Julin and Tim Connell are presenting a unique twin mandolin musical experience live at Artichoke Music. Mixing jazz, fiddle tunes, Brazilian and originals, the duo’s seasoned and fresh approaches to the mandolin feed off each other in an exciting, playful and very conversational performance. 

Julin is the author of Mandolin For Dummies and is based in Traverse City, Michigan. His original compositions have been used on network and cable television programs on Sony Classics, HBO, VH1, MTV, NBC, Bravo, National Geographic and many others. His latest CD is Tractor II, a collection of 13 originals.

Connell plays an original global mandolin style and is regarded as one of the top North American interpreters of the Brazilian choro style on the mandolin. His latest release includes MandAlone, a collection of original solo mandolin arrangements.

They perform together Wednesday, February 26 at Artichoke Music in a 7 pm show. Tickets are $15 available in advance at

Also at Artichoke this month: The Whiskey Poets (Dan Weber, Tom Arnold and Sig Paulson) are three award winning songwriters who each bring something different to the mix. Whiskey will be served for one night only. $15.
