    Thanks. I've done some poking around, and after looking at a dozen or so I found one which went into enough detail to mention "Nitrocellulose lacquer." Seems to me that would show more gloss than...

    Re: Greek mandolin music

    Fascinating. During the run of my Italian restaurant gig I ventured out of the box a bit to include a couple of Greek songs: "Never On Sunday" and "Yerakina," the latter being something I learned...

    How about some newer imagery of Lorraine Duisit? Here's her Bandcamp photo, and the album cover of her most recent album, 2020's "In My Heart I am Dancing." Plus a detail.
