Our Story

Mandolins in Brisbane (MIB) is Queensland’s foremost mandolin and guitar ensemble.

Founded in Brisbane, Queensland in 1998, Mandolins In Brisbane plays a varied repertoire from renaissance to contemporary.

Both playing groups not only continue the well-established traditions of mandolin music founded in Italy but also perform classical, folk, bluegrass and popular music from across the globe.

Brisbane Mandolins is conducted by classical guitarist and musical director, Joel Woods.

Get Involved

MIB rehearses alternating Monday nights and Saturday afternoons at St Mark’s Church Hall, 71 Newnham Road Mt Gravatt East.

Our group includes enthusiastic players of mandolins, mandolas, mandocello, guitar and double bass.

New players are always welcome to join our playing groups.

Violin players who wish to play the mandolin are especially welcome as the mandolin enjoys the same tuning as the violin.
