    Thanks to Martin for this great photo of Michelle Shocked and her Fender 8-string from another thread.

    Well, the Flatiron Festival F had a fleur-de-lis headstock like that ... but the finish on her instrument looks more like a '60s or '70s Gibson.

    I think the Michelle photo has graced this thread a couple of times already ... anyway, that's a Fender 5-string, not an 8-string.

    You're right - after posting I did a search and found Jim Simpson put it up in 2008. Well, it's such a great shot it was due for a reposting. Sorry about the typo. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Also, further internet searching has turned up plenty of pics of her with guitar but no mandolin, besides this.

    Has anyone posted the Trishas?







    Granted, only one of them plays the mandolin. They don't even have an album yet, but I think they'll be quite successful.

    Thanks for that. Makes sense. Can't tell from their website (not much info), but from the number of gigs they play in NJ and PA I figure they're from that area. Fans of poster art ought to check out their selection - someone in their organization has put some work into this overlooked aspect of promotion.

    Haven't found a video that shows Linda taking a lead, but this is a nice montage of stills. Most of the videos I've seen so far are poorly lit.



    Dont let the length scare you away - this is two songs. Linda takes a nice little ride at the end of the first one, about 4:35, and again near the end of the second. In fact, that seems to be their typical approach. This is really pretty much a guitar and steel band.

    But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. - Dennis Miller

    Dadgum! Someone in their camp ought to put up some better pix! These are from their myspace page, which is in desperate need of updating. According to that, they don't have a gig till New Year's Eve. Anyone looking for a PR gig?

    Eleanor Whitmore, based in NYC, plays fiddle more often. Just saw her backing up Allison Moorer on The Tonight Show. Nice job, actually audible. That's her producer and collaborator Chris Masterson on guitar. He was also on the show, doing his best Kenny Vaughan (that's a great compliment, by the way.)

    Yes, Ms Butterly ... She has graced this thread before (see Posts 1489 - 1492) and surely will again. I have yet to hear her music - I am way behind in this as regards many musicians - so I have no opinion about her audio output. The visual is indeed quite pleasant. Just for the record, I am not Charlie Brown (though everybody is picking on me), and I am not all tongue-tied about a certain red-headed girl - at least, I think so. Anyway, I see Allison Moorer will be on Letterman June 11th, so all y'all will get a chance to see and hear Eleanor Whitmore.

    First Aid Kit from Sweden, sisters Klara & Johanna S๖derberg, in a couple of promo shots, and one with what might be their management team. I kid. Really pleasant sound they have, especially vocally. The cover art is from their debut album, "The Big Black & The Blue," and the single, "Hard Believer." I don't know much about them, and I don't hear a lot of mandolin in the clips at their myspace page, but here they are anyway.They are in America for a couple more days:

    Frankly, these girls from First Aid Kit give me the creeps - that's the stuff for horror movies. A cabin in the woods, where many unsuspecting wanderers have strayed and were never seen again...

    Not exactly Brothers Grimm - I figure a typical Tim Burton Movie (with Johnny Depp, of course). But I haven't worked out the exact plot yet, except for Johnny playing a mandolinist. And those sisters in the woods would be suffering from MAS... Coming soon to a theater near you.

    I see where you're going with this. But I say, Depp Schmepp - the casting of the sisters is more crucial. I'm thinking Christina Ricci and Kirsten Dunst. Then again, animated could be the way to go, a la Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Now, now - I was just trying to find reasonable matches for height, hair color, and general demeanor, while being a bit lax on age. I believe both young ladies are still in their teens, while the aforementioned actresses are not, of course.

    I was gonna say, those young women might not like being portrayed by actresses so much more mature than them.... Also, if they're going in a Tim Burton movie, they better be willing (and smart enough) to colaborate with Danny Elfman.

    I didn't find their imagery or music particularly dark...

    I know ... our imaginations were running away, with us as hostages. I was blanking on the name of the actress in The Runaways - Dakota Fanning - who is only 16. Hollywood does have a history of casting people to play roles much younger than they actually are - easier to work with, more experienced in their craft. I think Ralph Macchio was 22 when he played the teenager in The Karate Kid.

    FWIW!

    Oh, and I agree - I don't hear much darkness in their music. Nor enough mandolin!

    I admit the effect is subtle and is limited to the b&w photos JB posted here (the videos on their myspace site show nothing of that). Teaches us what a good photographer can do.

    But I think Ricci & Dunst could do those movie characters convincingly. With some live music, it could end up as Blair Witch meets Deliverance.

    No mandolin content -- and I haven't listened to the First Aid Kit CDs -- but the sisters sing backup on one of my all-time favorite music videos -- Anna Ternheim's "Summer Rain," and on this, they're anything but creepy.

    That's really very nice, lovely arrangement and harmonies.

    There seems to be something going on in Scandinavia, from Katzenjammer to these young ladies, and others (Raveonettes, anyone?). This is a good example of what I love about this thread - learning about music and musicians from all over the world whom I had never heard of before. Even if that's not always the first reason why these musicians come to our attention, it often becomes the lasting one.
