He’s kind of a big deal: “one of the greatest mandolin virtuosos ever,” “the Michael Jordan of the mandolin,” “one of the few great musicians of our time,” and so on.

Toying with Science at Caltech

Toying with Science at Caltech

If you ever wanted to be on Bill Nye the Science Guy‘s show but never got the chance, Garry Krinsky‘s upcoming performance at Caltech might be a fair approximation. Except with juggling, singing, dancing and, uh… mime (which I actually quite enjoy). The performance, called “Toying with Science,” looks to be a vaudeville-meets-science-lecture kind of [...]
