Sims Delaney-Potthoff

Sims Delaney-Potthoff, Harmonious Wail's founder, leader and mandolinist , credits Jethro Burns with the band's unique, enticing style of mandolin-driven gypsy-jazz. Sims studied for seven years with Burns, the legendary jazz mandolinist, laying the foundation for Harmonious Wail's acoustic string sound. He furthered his studies with Matt Glaser at Boston's Berklee College of Music, honing his skills while immersing himself in the "gypsy" music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli (Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Bireli Lagrene, Duane Allman, David Grisman, and Louis Armstrong are also on his list of musical heroes)

Musician

Chris Thile

Born:

Thanks for Listening began as a simple idea: To document, in a studio setting, the tunes that singer, songwriter, and mandolinist Chris Thile had composed for the new “Song of the Week” segment of public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion during his inaugural season as host. Thile had set himself a formidable musical challenge and, as befits this enthusiastically risk-embracing artist, he was more than up to the task. In addition to traveling, planning, rehearsing, and performing on the fifteen episodes of APHC’s 2016–17 season, Thile managed each week to create a funny, topical, and at times quite poignant new song he would play with a rotating cast of APHC band-mates and guest stars

Liam Fromm

Born:

I started with a pencil, drumming everything swing, then I had an urge to play viola which was a classical setting for 10 years. While playing classical I heard all things swingand jazz, Jethro Burns and Tiny Moore playing on Austin City Limits-"how high the moon"-really sent me. So I switched to Mandolin after high school and have been playing melody ever since.
