Agency History/Biographical Sketch

Paul Wadey Jerome Butch Baldassari was born December 11, 1952 in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Baldassari was inspired to play the mandolin after seeing Andy Statman and Barry Mitterhoff play at the Philadelphia Folk Festival in 1972. He moved to Nashville in 1989 to pursue a career in music. His mandolin playing can be heard on recordings by artists such as Alison Krauss and the Nashville Bluegrass Band. He was a member of the bands Weary Hearts, Lonesome Standard Time, and The Grass is Greener.

After attending the convention of The Classical Mandolin Society of America in 1990, he became interested in the repertoire and history of mandolin orchestras. When he returned to Nashville, he founded the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble. The ensemble consisted of mandolins, mandola, mandocello, guitar, and bass.

Baldassari had his own record company, SoundArt Recordings, which released dozens of his projects. A musician of eclectic tastes, Baldassaris recordings include jazz, classical, bluegrass, and Christmas music. He was also a well-loved professor at Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University. Baldassari died on January 10th, 2009 in Nashville, Tennessee.
