The mandolin is becoming a popular and vital instrument for players in all genres. In country music, the mandolin has made quite a comeback since the heyday of the Nashville sound in the ’60s and ’70s, with the powerful neo-traditionalist movement that re-introduced the mandolin to audiences. In rock music, the mandolin has been present since the late ’60s, from the acoustic-tinged albums of Rod Stewart to the heady acoustic ballads of Led Zeppelin—all of which made the mandolin a familiar sound to rock audiences. Today, the growing interest in unplugged and singer/songwriter music continues to showcase the mandolin.
