    Hey, that mandolin is exactly the same I have! If a real musician can put up with this, it can't be that bad after all.

    Here are a few of Amanda Walther who is one half of the Canadian duo Dala.

    Not able to find a video of Amanda playing a mandolin, however you'll see one in a stand behind her on this one.

    The bad news: The Lovell Sisters are breaking up! Jessica, the eldest and the fiddler, is leaving the band, going to college, and announced her engagement.

    The good news, from their website:

    Megan and Rebecca will continue on making music together, so be sure
    to stay tuned for new and exciting sound waves coming from this dynamic duo!

    FAREWELL CONCERTS BY THE LOVELL SISTERS:
    Dec 26 - Atlanta, GA - Eddie's Attic (7pm Show)
    Dec 26 - Atlanta, GA - Eddie's Attic (9pm Show)
    Jan 16 - Calhoun, GA - Harris Arts Center

    COME CHECK OUT MEGAN & REBECCA'S NEW DUO:
    Feb 20, 2010 - Ft. Lauderdale, FL - Culture Room*
    Feb 21 - 26, 2010 - Miami, FL - Cayamo Cruise
    Feb 27, 2010 - Orlando, FL - House of Blues*
    Mar 1, 2010 - Tallahassee, FL - The Moon*
    Mar 2, 2010 - Mobile, AL - Saenger Theatre*
    (* = opening for Brandi Carlile)

    Much as I'd like to see them, and Brandi Carlile, it's five hours from here to Ft. Lauderdale - even if I had wheels. Sigh ...

    Here are Rebecca and Jessica, The Lovell Sisters in their heyday at The Grand Ole Opry, and Rebecca and Megan (sort of Lovell Sisters past, present and yet to come)

    These girls are almost women, my grandaughters Alecia and Tylor both 13. They both play fiddle pretty good so we were working on some Soldiers Joy on the mandos. They were picking it up pretty easy. They are alot of fun for me to watch when they are figuring out music they both read and then they use there ears to get the nuances. It's almost like a competion to see who can figure it out first.
    Maybe you can tell I'm very proud of them.

    Don't know if this one has been posted, but, do you remember Glinda the good witch in "the Wizard Of Oz"?
    She can be viewed here with a banjolin. Who'd a thunk it? (Sorry I couldn't figure out how to copy the pic and paste it here.)

    Eric, maybe the wicked witch just played a b@njo? Thanks for posting that link and thanks to Plami for posting the picture.

    Pictures of Eva Holobrook were posted earlier in posts 423 and 715, but I believe this may be the first video of this amazing mandolinist for this thread with her band SHEL as well as some more recent pictures.

    Gloriana perform "How Far Do You Wanna Go?" on the Ellen Degeneres Show 1/13/10. They may be up and coming - they were the top-selling new country band last year, and beat out Lady Gaga for the AMA for Breakthrough Artist of the Year - but you'd be hard-pressed to find much that resembles country here. Still, they rock it pretty hard, and a couple of times you can hear the mandolin rise above the midrange mushy mix you usually hear on TV. Unless you've sunk a lot of money into your home entertainment system.




    PS: The part of Glinda was played by Billie Burke, whose husband was famed Broadway impresario Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. She also was in "Dinner At Eight" and the "Topper" series. That picture is one of only four of her at imdb.com.

    I really like that. Kind of reminds me of Fleetwood Mac, only bouncier. Maybe the Gin Blossoms.

    I think it's just a bit fresher, but still more pop than country - indeed, I couldn't hear much country at all. For the past ten years or so it's seemed as though most mainstream country (ie Nashville product) has been sounding like recycled 80s power pop or arena rock with just a touch of twang. I'm not saying all - there have always been those who rose above the masses or just marched to the beat of their own drummers - but most. This sounds a little more progressed than that; maybe it's a subtle distinction. Of course, following the 20-years-behind-the-times mathematical model, they may be catching up to the 90s in Music City. Not starting a fan club any time soon, nor predicting a sea change in the Nashville Sound, but this wasn't all bad. How's that for a ringing endorsement?

    Nashville sound? It's kind of a tamer version of the 1990s Athens, Ga. sound, methinks.

    Ha! Touché! Tamer and slicker. By "Nashville sound" I meant whatever is being produced and accepted by the major labels and their acolytes and the wannabes in Music City, which must adhere to the specifications decreed by Country MUSIC - that is, Music Universally Standardized for Industrial Commercialization.

    If THAT's the best new group out of Nashville for 2009-oh boy is music in trouble. All I got out of it was someone asking 47 times over How far do you want to go. The music was your same old boring 3 chord ####. The vocals were nothing to write home about. Same old formula for success, good looking young 3 chord talented people who have pearly whites that take nice photos, and are willing to put it out there. The best thing was-it's over when Ellen came running out to meet and greet. Shesh, makes me glad that I don't listen to mainstream anything anymore.
    If it ain't got at least 3 strings on it, it ain't worth playing.

    Just sittin back, pickin and grinnin!

    Thank you AMY RAY for giving me an interest in mandolin and bouzouki, as well as Bill M, and countless others!

    Hmmm, grouch much? They're the best SELLING new group in country, so blame the public not Nashville - though the bigs will follow the bucks, and we may definitely see/hear more like this as a result. This is still the best I've heard from them - which may not be saying much, considering I've only heard what I've seen on TV - and believe me, I wouldn't have paid them any mind if they didn't have a mandolinist with looks like Cheyenne Kimball's. Don't mean to offend, but so far I've heard very little from her (note previous proviso) so I'm going by what I've seen. Wish we had a smiley that shrugged, that would fit right here ...

    That stuff is so far away from my musical interests it might as well come from Mars. Reminds me why I finally cut the cable and got rid of the TV in my house. I do miss the documentaries and nature shows - even Austin City Limits at times. But this sort of stuff - Ugh.

    So far it seems we're basing our judgments on Gloriana from a few videos and Cheyenne's looks - not really the best way to formulate an opinion of someone's musicianship. I'm still waiting to hear from someone who has plunked down hard-earned money for any of their CDs. But as they say, the silence is deafening. Until then, here are some more pics ...

    I'm not sure how money translates to quality, i.e., best selling equals good band.

    Popularity means little these days. In fact, its getting to the point that if its popular I pretty much don't bother. I much prefer unpopular music.

    I did go and watch 7 or 8 uTube videos of Cheyenne playing and singing at various points in her life. She plays guitar at a rudimentary level - she is basically a strummer. Same with mandolin. Her voice is ok - but nothing special. Frankly, the sexy look is pretty much the story is seems. Same with everyone in that band - as far as I can tell. I do not detect one once of genuine soul in any of it.

    Hate to be so harsh - but - what can I say?

    "Hate to be so harsh-but-what can I say?" Well, for starters, we can say nothing. They're making music. Hopefully, they'll inspire others to make music. If they make more money at it than you, tough. If you make music for love, and not for money, then that's great, too. We can't be critical of the marksman if we're all aiming at different targets. It just doesn't matter what style of music anyone is making, the world's a better place if more people would play than sitting around eating junk food in front of a TV, or driving aimlessly to the nearest mall to buy the latest piece of whatever it is on sale that day. We need to inspire creativity in the human race, and if Cheyenne can help do it, then we're all better off. I mean, when was the last time you listened to Bela Bartok's Violinkonzert#2. That's really intellectually stimulating music, very highbrow. Enough with the threads dumping on a style of music.
