Paul Binkley Remembered

Paul Binkley was diagnosed with lung cancer in April of 2014 and passed away on November 12, 2014.

He was a founding member of the GRAMMY-nominated Modern Mandolin Quartet with Dana Rath, Matt Flinner and Adam Roszkiewicz. (Past members include Mike Marshall, John Imholtz, Dave Peters, Gyan Riley, Radim Zenkl and Chris Thile). The group set a new standard of music performed on mandolin family instruments, toured throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe and recorded four CD’s for Windham Hill Records and two for Dorian Sono Luminus.

Paul played mandola in the group but it was his brilliant musical arrangements and deep understanding of classical music which set the group apart and did much to infuse it with it’s unique sound. Read Mike Marshall's Tribute:
