Jack Dunlap is the mandolinist for the trio Bud’s Collective, and has worked alongside past and present members of Mountain Heart, Audie Blaylock and Redline, Dailey and Vincent, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, Blue Highway, Chris Jones and the Night Drivers and Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper, to name a few. Though growing up playing bluegrass music, Jack stretches his instrument into other genres such as jazz, swing, blues, rock, classical, country, Eastern Indian folk music, Celtic, polka and many others. He worked as the apprentice to VA based mandolin legend Danny Knicely through the VA Folklife Program. Knicely and Dunlap recorded the album “Chop, Shred & Split – A Mandolin Player’s Apprenticeship” together in 2015. The album went on to win Best Bluegrass Album of the Year at the Washington Area Music Awards (WAMMIES).
An ambassador of music, Jack Dunlap has made a beeline for success. When he is not playing onstage, he is playing offstage.
At the age of 25, Jack is already endorsed by Fairbuilt Guitars, Carey Mandolins and Eastman Guitars & Mandolins and is a hand-chosen apprentice to the legendary Danny Knicely.
