    I don't remember seeing Della Mae on this thread.
    If they are it's been awhile.
    I love the sound of Jenni Lyn Gardners 'Daly'.

    If they have it right on Utube that would be Courtney Hartman on the Daly and Jenni Lyn Gardners on five string violin. Thanks for posting. A nice mix of the old and new by some very beautiful and talented ladies.

    It's posted both ways with different Utube clips. Have you seen them live? Maybe They switch up on songs occasionally.

    I'm about 99% sure that Jenni Lyn Gardner is playing (and quite well!) the Daley mandolin. Courtney Hartman is their lead guitarist, I believe.

    Stumbled upon this new recording on Facebook. An exceptional musician, for sure, featured on a solo recording that sounds to be by modern composers. This one will be hard to find in the U.S. but someone has copies on eBay.

    Ok, but check out the mando-girl and fiddler in Flatt Lonesome. And she don't have to nail her pinky on the top in order to plunkety plunk!

    AJ who plays with the Tuttles is pretty good too but its the singing.

    I took these pictures of Sonya Isaacs this Labor Day Weekend in Shipshewana. That's her custom Gibson Fern and a banjolin of hers.

    I was lucky to see the 3 Ferreira sisters, Choro das 3, last night at a house concert in Woods Hole, MA. Elisa is a phenomenon, playing mandolin, tenor banjo, clarinet, and piano with equal acuity, and writing choros since she was a mere sprat. I wish I had left my phone camera on all last night, but I got a few videos. Here's one, my first youtube upload.

    They are in Boston, Providence, Bristol, and NYC over the next few days.

    Had the pleasure of seeing Della Mae at the Delaware Valley BG Festival last weekend...its definitely Jenni Lyn Gardner on mando. They put on a great show and, yes, she does that Daley justice and vice versa!

    well, with 100 pages, I probably skipped her.

    and Bill, she sure does look like a good dog. I hate it when I lose a pet

    With about 100 pages several people have brought up a previously mentioned player "for the first time". Plus some of the earlier linked to photos might have disappeared. (I think they have changed the way linked to photos work now so this won't happen anymore).

    So here is a fun one. Not a mandolin! An 8 string ukulele. Played as a ukulele. Well played. Very nice.

    As much as I post, I pick a whole lot more. Just sayin'

    Her hand position doesn't look like it should work at all. At least it wouldn't for me. But she rocks it. Well done.

    Interesting - G C E A tuning, with the G and C as octaves and the E and the A as unison, like a mandolin. Bet you can't run down to Guitar Center and buy strings....

    I also see that the tenor 8 strings all have truss rods, unlike the vast majority of ukuleles.
    1918 Gibson A, "Lillian";
    1940s (?) Kay A style f hole - currently down for a refret and fretboard re-profile, my first attempts (with guidance) at lutherie.
    1981 Washburn M7SN (2 point);
    2011 Eastman 504, "Belle";
    2012 Lafferty mahogany octave mandolin;
    2012 Emando (Saga), "Hank"

    Nice playing, I can't help but notice how long her fingers are. Kinda like Eubie Blakes.
