    Judith,
    Nice Picture!

    Bobster,
    The picture of Donna Stoneman was from June 8, 1970 taken at West Finley, PA.

    You can see her with the rest of the Stoneman's in Bluegrass Odyssey - a documentary in pictures & words, 1966-86 by Carl Fleischhauer & Neil V. Rosenberg.

    Thanks, Jim, for starting this thread. If I had some pics of Sharon Gilchrist, they'd be here. She and Bryn Davies made the most remarkable complement to the combined musical presence of Tony Rice and Peter Rowan this past year; couldn't get enough of that group and hope they keep playing together for some time to come. Anybody have some shots of Sharon et al.?

    Here's one of my Mom who has since passed away. She didn't play but was a good sport and went along with the photo suggestion. I think I must have inherited her sense of humor.

    Two beautiful German women with mandolins - Caterina Lichtenberg and Gertrud Weyhofen. Germany`s most brilliant mandolin players. I have a better picture of Caterina at home. Will post it tonight.
