Shakin' Down the Acorns is a traditional mountain tune from an album by multi-instrumentalists Danny Knicely & Jack Dunlap called, Chop, Shred & Split, that features their amazing twin mandolins. The album is a record of the fruits of Danny and Jack’s apprenticeship. The selections on the project speak to Danny’s trademark versatility and creativity. Danny leads his apprentice on a musical expedition that seamlessly transcends the boundaries of genre. You’ll be treated to a collection of originals that span the gamut from bluegrass to swing, funk, polka, and even the stylings of the late South Indian mandolin master U. Srinivas, memorialized in their joint composition “Wish U. Was Here.” These originals are complemented with an eclectic array of covers by the likes of Benny Goodman, Rex McGee, and the French jazz musician Tchavolo Schmitt.
