Indiana Firefly

Here's Indiana Firefly, a John Reischman tune from his 1999 CD Up In The Woods, which has a lot of great little tunes for mandolin pickers. There's a transcription on Mandozine, along with a lot of other transcriptions of Reischman tunes.

Resichman got his start with the Tony Rice Unit in the late 1970's, living in California until the 1990's when he moved to Vancouver, BC. He performs regularly, most notably with his band The Jaybirds. He's well known for the fine tone of his mandolin picking, and his tastefully understated compositions.
