Brian Oberlin’s solo shows are unique in that listeners will be immersed in  ALL things mandolin; from Italian and modern classical to Brian’s roots of bluegrass and swing to his award winning, multi-genre original music,  all with vocals. Listeners can also expect a bit of humor and an educational component about the mandolins he’s playing and their  venerable place in mandolin music history.



From Grand Rapids, MI, Brian Oberlin is an internationally acclaimed  mandolin player and educator. During his decades long professional  career, Brian has been playing swing, bluegrass, and Italian classical  as a solo mandolinist and vocalist.
