    Happy Birthday, Rebecca Lovell! Sure, she's playing guitar a lot more than mandolin these days - in fact, it's getting hard to find a photo of her with a mandolin - so some of these are a bit old. But we remember.

    Here's a concert from just a couple of days ago by "Mandolin Princess." She may be located in Spartanburg, S.C., but I'm not certain. Don't know her real name but she looks to be about 14 and is tackling some technically demanding stuff here. The H4/K4 duet on "Cazadero" is a lot of fun. Unfortunately she leaves her accompanist in the dirt on the third movement of the Vivaldi. But overall -- Way to go!

    Neither; coincidence, not influence. They both seem to be following the Neil Young model. They both do the song well, but they bring nothing new to it, besides adding mandolin to the instrumentation, and removing harmonica and the broom-percussion. So while both are pleasant versions, neither is terribly imaginative or innovative, which is a bit frustrating, considering the talent at hand.

    I get disappointed sometimes when someone covers a song without transforming it somehow - not always, but often enough that it's noticeable. When The Beatles redid a song, they made it their own. Yet when people cover The Beatles, all too often they tend to imitate them rather than do the same, and breathe new life into it. The Kennedys, in their weekly hour-long streaming concert (Sundays 2PM ET; search for them on youtube) covered Lulu's old warhorse "To Sir With Love," starting about 52 minutes in, which they elevated far beyond its original state. I mean, the song was trite in its day. The Kennedys did it in such a way I was moved, far beyond what I'd expected. I'd try to post it, but it would take too much effort, and there's no MC, and that's beside the point. Which is: don't just do the song, do something with it.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming, already in progress.

    The Drinker by Eric Plontke. Not sure if this is a man or a women but the theme seems quite popular at the moment. Sometimes I come across tunes with names that i really don’t care for, but if I like the tune, why not. I like the style of painting at least. Enjoy!

    I know exactly what you mean. My mom was an English teacher too. She was a teetotaler as well. Once, at the dinner table, the subject of beer came up. My brother, who was about ten, told us that he didn't like beer. We all looked at him, and someone asked, "How do you know what beer tastes like?" He said, "Me 'n Georgie drank some of his father's beer." My mother slammed her palms down on the table and said, "James!" We kids all figured that he'd crossed a serious line and was in big trouble, but my mother continued, "Georgie and ME!" We learned that we could get away with anything if we used bad grammar while explaining our actions.

    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    Thanks for the correction, Mark. I should not have attributed those words to my poor, departed mother. To quote Merle Haggart, "Mama Tried."

    It's alright Ranald, I'm sure your mama would be proud of you despite grammatical errors. If you have a photo of her playing a mandolin we can get this thread back on its rails ... I hate being a grammar nazi, can't help it sometimes, it hurts my head to read a lot of what I find on the internet these days, even from professional journalists, etc.

    Well, the seasonal country-cajun-bluegrass band does "Mama Tried," and even though the drummer sings lead on that one, the band is led by the rhythm guitar player, who is a woman, and I play mandolin in the band - so does that roundabout association count as relevance?

    Anyway ... There's always time for a picture of Allison Stephens.

    I noted that Allison Stephens has got a mention here. Such a great loss to the mandolin world when she passed away in October 2010. Seems like only yesterday.
