tony williamson mandolin river houseTony Williamson starting today is an outstanding advocate of the art of the mandolin. An excellent player whose repertoire spans bluegrass, blues, jazz, swing and classical, Tony is also a living encyclopedia of mandolin history and lore who, I have long thought, should write a book on the subject.

Tony was born in rural Randolph County, North Carolina, to a family of farmers, woodworkers and self-taught musicians who settled that area in the late 1700s. His grandfather made his own instruments (his personal banjo is in the North Carolina Museum of History) and inspired his grandchildren to play music. By the 1960s Tony had won the mandolin competitions at Union Grove and Galax and he and his brother Gary were making recordings, appearing as The Bluegrass Gentlemen and later The Green Valley Ramblers. A year with The Bluegrass Alliance in the 1970s took Tony on the road and gave him national exposure.

From his home in Siler City, North Carolina, Tony runs Mandolin Central, dealing in vintage instruments as well as those made by some of the top contemporary luthiers. Having his wife and partner, Germaine, to manage many of the day-to-day aspects of the business gives Tony the time to pursue other projects such as his video, “The Sound of the American Mandolin,” which many consider the most informative documentary of the evolution of the modern mandolin’s design ever made. Building on this idea, Tony next “took the show on the road,” presenting programs which showcased a part of his collection of mandolin and guitar family instruments and showing the unique character of each.

Not content to limit his field of musical expertise to Bluegrass, Tony has performed with symphony orchestras and has presented programs at the conventions of the Classical Mandolin Society of America. He has released at least five really fine CDs, both as a soloist and with his brother Gary as a duo, and is an in-demand studio musician for albums produced by many others.
