Tony Williamson, Mandolin Player
"Mandolin Virtuoso Tony Williamson sure can play, and what he doesn't know about mandolins, nobody does!" This is how Acoustic Musician magazine summed up the skill of a man whose concerts have delighted audiences for more than 40 years in every state of the Union and in many foreign countries. His tours have included performances in France, Ireland, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil and most recently, Peru. He brings to the concert stage a love of music, a deep connection to his Carolina roots, and a wonderful knowledge of musical instruments and their history. He also brings the amazing ability to be at home playing bluegrass, classical, old-time, or jazz both solo and with an ensemble.
Tony was born and raised in rural Piedmont North Carolina in a family of wood-workers and musicians. His grandfather, Alfred, made his own musical instruments (at one time his banjo was on display the N.C. Museum of History) and inspired his grandchildren, who began playing music around 1957. With Tony on mandolin and his brother Gary on banjo, they became child sensations and by 1969 had won first place in the coveted "World Championship" in Union Grove, North Carolina. In 1968 the Williamson Brothers recorded "John Henry" for Follett Publishing Co. for an anthology called "Discovering Music Together". Also included in this book and LP record album collection were contributions from the pop group "Blood Sweat & Tears" and the Boston Symphony.
After taking a degree with highest honors at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, Tony answered the call to go on the road with a touring band, the Bluegrass Alliance, whose alumni include Vince Gill, Sam Bush, and Tony Rice. Afterwards, working in a succession of bands led him to the top of his field playing classical, jazz and folk music as well as bluegrass. His credits include performances on stage or in the recording studio with Alison Krauss, Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Bobby Hicks, Tony Rice, Vassar Clements, David Grisman, Sam Bush, Mike Marshall, Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas, Don Stiernberg, and Robin and Linda Williams of “Prairie Home Companion” fame, as well as Chris Thile, set to replace Garrison Keillor. He has even performed for Luciano Pavarotti! More recently, he performed with Bobby Hicks at the North Carolina Folk Heritage Award ceremony. His many awards and nominations from national music organizations include the IBMA International Bluegrass Music Association’s “Recorded Event of the Year in 1994."
