    In an attempt to get the thread back on topic, here are three pictures of Erin Zindle of the Ragbirds playing mandolin.

    i'd guess she placed something over the sound hole to reduce feedback from the mic ... but i can't imagine why she - or anyone - would want someone's doodle on her arm for the rest of her (hopefully) long and happy life.

    Apparently Finn Fox in the band Chickweed doesn't mind. Here is one of her playing her mandolin.

    Thanks for making the effort - we're getting close

    There's also Rebecca Lovell's tattoo in #1359. Tattoos are a lot more common now than ever, especially for women, but perhaps less so in the bluegrass community, which tends to be more traditionally minded.

    Here are some more of The Lovell Sisters, in which Rebecca's tattoo is discreetly covered. It's Rebecca on mandolin, Jessica on fiddle, and Megan on dobro, playing what they call "Groovy Acoustic."

    Not to belabor the obvious, but in that first photo Rebecca is just stunning.

    Just to help further your edification,
    Some people here object to objectification.
    Me, I'm partial to identification.
    Does this mandolinist have an appellation?

    Here is a little different look from a Life Magazine from 1911. Times sure have changed, for both fashions and mandolins.

    See how important it is to have a mandolin matching your hair color. Does anybody make them in bright grey?

    Hey DjangoFret...that #1408 would be Denise Sandstrom from Louisiana. (I only know because she just joined My Silver Angel Mandolins Myspace site.) You can go to the site, I think and look at her myspace site...I'll put her on "Top Friends" for a spell...

    Oh, you mean THIS Denise Sandstrom?!? Aka Denny Sands, originally from Gaffney, South Carolina, niece of Hank Garland, and apparently owner of a few mandolins ... There's the Alvarez we've seen, a Kentucky, and her old one, can't quite see the make, but its name is Sherry. She's come a long way ...

    There is a "Mandolin Anonymous," group on Facebook that I joined when I created an account there about a month ago, and the day after I joined I received a "friend," invite from a woman by the name of "Federica Furlanetto." So far, I can tell that she is an accomplished classical mandolin player, is Italian, and quite fetching. Here is a shot of her "Ensemble femminile di strumenti a pizzico," taken in Rome. Federica is the young lady second from the left.



    She plays Mandolin in an orchestra, and some of the shots she has uploaded of the orchestra playing in Roman churches are breathtaking. Here is one taken at "Sant'Antonio dei Portoghesi:"

    Delightful! Do you know, is Federica holding a bowlback mandola? It looks a little larger than the others. I've never seen one before. Right now I am imagining the sound of many mandolins played in tremulous unison and/or glorious harmony filling a magnificent architectural space like that church ... sigh ...

    I agree. It's the kind of color one sees more often in a sunburst finish gradation, not the whole instrument. It seems, though, that the Alvarez is her main instrument, and it may also be that the Kentucky belongs to someone else, as the pictures of her playing it are all from the same evening, which may have been a brief guest spot. It's a little difficult trying to figure out her story, as she is a little coy and playful. She did manage to find a use for a miniature mandolin.

    Big 'nuff so its tail don't wag IT!

    Yeah, I can't quite figure that one out. If it's posing with a mandolin key chain, that would have to be one mini-miniature pup. Or a REAL toy beagle At least it's wearing skivvies ... whew!
