Relive the magic of Mike and Tom Mangione's Live from the White Pine August 7th performance. Colleen Finn hosted the live broadcast event with the key members of Mike Mangione & The Union on WXPR's Northwoods Cafe.   

The show opened with a duo of songs capturing the feelings of coming home, My Love in combination with the title track from their 2010 album The Offering. Colleen follows up with a few observations on the art of producing a natural tremolo.   

Colleen and Mike chat on recording with producer Bo Ramsey.

Mike Mangione & The Union's forthcoming album Red-Winged Blackbird Man is scheduled for release on September 3, 2013. The six piece band features the rich orchestration of guitars, strings, and drums. At the album's core are the songwriting, vocal, and fret-mastering talents of Mike and Tom Mangione, highlighted in this guitar version of the title track.   

Many thanks to Mike and Tom for sharing their music and inspiration with the WXPR listening audience. You can follow their music and extensive tour schedule through Wisconsin, the Midwest, and beyond at Mike Mangione & The Union

Stay tuned to WXPR for the next Live from the White Pine broadcast on Thursday August 22 at 7 pm with Kelly Jackson on Northwoods Cafe with Craig Harrison.
