Formed in late 2010, Mandolin Whiskey is a blend of all things acoustic that stimulate the soul; Mandolin, Harmonica, Acoustic Guitar, Violin, and Bass. We play music made popular by those legendary bands such as Eric Clapton, Steve Earle, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Seger, Van Morrison, Neil Young, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Santana and others.
TC Conner-Lead guitarist/Vocalist:
TC is a native of Central Kentucky and is a veteran musician who has played in bands such as Spider Ridge, Linefork, The Doghouse Three, and others. His soulful leads and great harmonies will exhilarate your senses. They give you that fist-pumping, make you cry and shout for joy feeling, and are close in power to that of Eric Clapton and Santana. Seriously!
