    This fantastic concert featured two of Australia's finest mandolin virtuosi:

    Sue Flower and Marissa Carroll who performed in Antonio Vivaldi's G Maj Concerto for Two Mandolins, Hummel's Concerto in G Maj for Mandolin and Elke Tober-Vogt's Concerto for Mandolin from Frederick the Great.

    Michelle Nelson (Classical Guitar) also featured as a soloist playing in a trio with both Sue and Marissa.

    Yes, I was refering to the one suspended on the bracket,,,,,but I must admit that the levitating mandolinist is rather amazing. Can she jump that high from the ground or is she jumping off something? Gee I need to get a life....

    Oh, I see what you're talking about. That's an instrument hanger attached to the mike stand. You see in the first photo where the mandolinist wearing yellow has her arms spread out and the mandolin is kind of floating there (that's what I though you meant) it is held by a strap, while a guitar is hanging from the mike stand. That same setup is being used in the fourth photo with the instruments reversed.

    And Pat - the levitating mandolinist I mentioned is on the right, in red, but the leaping lady with extraordinary altitude is playing guitar ... but the height she gets is indeed noteworthy - and she's barefoot, too. I think they're just young, full of energy, and light. But not lightweight, not by a long shot!

    It sure is hard to keep up with them, they swap around their instruments so much. I think I've got it sussed out, though, for the posed photo, #6, left to right:

    Turid Jørgensen - bass, mandolin
    Solveig Heilo - drums, bass, trumpet
    Marianne Sveen - guitar, accordion
    Anne Marit Bergheim - mandolin, guitar

    It's really dizzying trying to figure out who plays what when, but the first instruments mentioned seem to be their main instruments. That's the instrumentation in the Sundown Festival 2009 photo (the levitation one). Beyond that, who knows?

    Um, actually that's Gretchen Peters. Here's Carrie Rodriguez, with her MandoBird ...





    What I like about this second video is the nice ringing tone she gets with the single string MandoBird. Also, for those who say a mandolin can't provide good rhythm backup for guitar, pay attention to this! BTW, the name of this song is "Seven Angels On A Bicycle."

    This lovely 3" x 4" photo can be yours, available now on ebay. She is not playing a Gibson - acccording to the description, "penciled on back is a note 'Merry Christmas To Mr + Mrs W.L. Gibson'." That's how this turned up via my search parameters.

    Analise Gold of Gold Heart, based in Virginia. Sisters Jocelyn on guitar and Shelby on fiddle plus their father Trent on bass, and Russ Carson on banjo, round out the band. They're pretty new on the scene but starting to make a big splash. The group shot is from two years ago, included mostly to show her luxurious long hair, usually up. Good form on the chop chord in pic #1!

    Well, I've got good news and bad news. The good news is, Milla Jovovich married Paul W. S. Anderson yesterday. The bad news is, none of us ever stood a chance with her anyway! Mr. Anderson has directed a bunch of action movies - Alien vs Predator, Mortal Kombat, the Resident Evil series among them. They've been together over six years and have a 21-month-old daughter, Ever Gabo Anderson.

    Congratulations and best wishes!

    I might just go on and pick up her album. Gets some pretty good reviews at amazon, and there are some for less than $1 ...

    Congratulations to Milla and wishing her much happiness in her marriage. Here are a couple of pictures that I don't think have appeared in this thread before. There is definitely a mandolin in the first and I'm pretty sure that is one behind her in the second.

    Oh no, you didn't! I imagine she might find some of what's been said about her a little disconcerting, however well-intentioned. Well, hopefully she has a sense of humor about such matters.

    Once again, Mr. Fret, your persistence has paid off and you have found images hitherto unknown hereabouts. It was all I could do to find one; you have found two! Now, if only someone could find photos of Milla actually playing mandolin, rather than just posing. I remain skeptical that she plays, and await delivery of "The Divine Comedy" to see what I may learn from the liner notes. I've seen musician credits on the interweb (she's not in them) but nothing beats holding the actual artifact.

    That's why I've said before, and say again, especially in this thread, post as if the person you're writing about is reading (ideally over your shoulder) what you're writing.

    Exactly. This has been brought up before but it's worth remembering, especially in this thread, where we walk a fine line sometimes. Even people who work in the public eye in fields such as cinema and modeling deserve respect and consideration, and by and large they are treated that way here. I had just taken a look through earlier posts to guard against duplicating photos and reread some old posts. We've come a long way since then.

    I wholeheartedly agree and keep in mind that younger mandolin players come to this site so we mando-elders need to set a good example for them. Otherwise, we might be perceived as no better than b@njo players!

    I think, in spite of a few posts that pushed things a bit, it's a relatively well-behaved bunch in here (please don't prove me wrong).

    I'm sure Miss Jovavich is used to being told she's pretty, after all, it's part of her livelihood. By the way, if she is reading this, Milla, the 5th Element is one of my favorite movies ever, mostly because of you and Mr. Oldman. Great job, now do you really play mandolin?
    If I call my guitar my "axe," does that mean my mandolin is my hatchet?
