Mandolin Mondays #216: The incredible Adam Wright of the Alabama acoustic group Act of Congress brings us a tasty original tune played on his 2008 Collings MF for this week’s Mandolin Mondays.
Since forming the band Act of Congress in 2008, Adam has toured with the group in Thailand, Oman, Palau, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Philippines, Timor Leste, Bali, Liberia, Jordan, as well as the greater USA. AOC has backed up country music star, Sara Evans and American Idol winner, Taylor Hicks. The band has released two full length albums, two acclaimed Christmas EPs, a live CD/DVD and the documentary “A Week In The Life.”
Adam also makes music under the moniker The Corner Room; an acoustic project that sets passages of the Bible to music. Check out his latest album With His Wounds We Are Healed, here:
Here’s a word from Adam about the video, “The tune is an instrumental that Act of Congress wrote but never recorded (or named). As far as a title, let’s go with ‘Deep Cut.’ The mandolin is a 2008 Collings MF. I have been a proud owner of it all 12 years of it’s life. I consider it a lifetime mandolin!”

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then…
