    I felt transported in time. Clap! clap! encore! I love it when intensity is through single sustaining notes and slides. They sing their notes around each other before joining as one almost like a dance. Thank you for sharing.

    Jeff I got to agree. There are too many that play the mandolin like a typewriter.

    Possibly. But since this is a mandolin forum, we're more likely to know about mandolin players. If that video was on a bass forum instead, they might recognize the bass player but not have a clue who the mandolinist is.

    It's the fate of bass players (I'm a sometime bass player myself).

    Question: How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?
    Answer: Nobody knows. Nobody ever paid attention.

    The lady touching the banjo looks happier than the lady holding the mandolin. This must be a fake photo
    I guess it was a Gibson PR photo.

    maybe she's not touching the banjo

    They sound great! Very American for a UK group, though.

    While talking with a friend, somehow Milla came up. Did the old google search so I could send a pic, and a different shot from that old photo shoot showed up. It's from her website, so now I know it goes back to 1994 - 24 years ago! Just think - if she had put some time in practicing, where would she be by now?

    Hmm. Is that allowed here? Well I suppose it's no worse than the infamous MandolinCafe hammock-guy thread a year or so ago, a guy wearing a mandolin instead of clothing. Too bad no one preserved that classified ad's pic for posterity, it was rather amusing.

    The original pics from this shoot featured the actual top, which is not opaque. This and the other two previously posted were chosen so as not to display anything untoward. I added this because it was another frame from the session which had not appeared here before.

    Pretty sure I recall that her daddy built or builds mandolins. Here from her Artist Bio. Her dad is from Maryland originally. He did build Dobro's.
    Leanne was born in London to a musical family with both Irish and American roots. Her mother, Mary, comes from County Donegal and is a fine singer in the Country tradition. Her father, Ced Thorose, originates from Maryland, USA, but has lived in the UK most of his life where he has established a unique reputation as the leading maker and player of resophonic bluegrass guitars.

    Leanne began teaching herself bluegrass fiddle at the age of 14 after seeing a recording of an Alison Krauss concert, but as family holidays were spent in County Donegal, she attended many sessions there and soon began to absorb the style of traditional Irish music.

    When she was sixteen her father made her an "F" style mandolin and, inspired by the likes of Bill Monroe, Chris Thile and Sam Bush, again she taught herself to play in the bluegrass style.

    The woman with the banjo also has a mandocello! Meanwhile the harp guitar looks like it's about to fall on the mandolinist.
