    Fine, sit around and watch as the Clear Channels and Cashville's of the western world ruin our culture if that is what you want. But don't expect me to stand by muzzled. I'm going to express my opinion and do everything I can to promote quality music and art in my community (as I see you do in yours).

    Getting this thread back on the topic of Women with Mandolins, here are a few pictures of Amy Finders. Amy was a founding member of the Awful Purdies, and was playing up until last year with her husband Mike, but she looks to be away from playing music at the present time.

    Hope she gets back into it some day since it sure looks like she really enjoys singing and playing the mandolin.

    Thanks, M. Django. Our attentions do wander, don't they, and then when they get snapped back a deafening silence often follows. But along similar lines, I saw elsewhere that gospel singer and mandolinist Sonya Isaacs of The Isacs and Jimmy Yeary of Shenandoah recently got married, so I thought I'd post this here.

    The ceremony was held on 12/20/09 at the Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. From the baker of the wedding cake (Sour Cream Almond and Red Velvet with Cheesecake Swiss Meringue buttercream):

    There were three musical breaks in the ceremony. The first was Vince Gill singing The Rock of Your Love with Ben Isaacs and Becky Isaacs Bowman, Sonya’s brother and sister and two of the four members of The Isaacs. As Vince was singing, his voice cracked as he was incredibly touched by the happy couple and I’m certain that 200+ guests choked up at the same time. Jimmy and Sonya sang a tune they had just completed called Feels Like Christmas to one another as soon as they finished their vows. It was an honor to witness the first time that song was sung before an audience and I’m looking forward to the release on an album in the future. The Gaither Vocal Band’s I Then Shall Live was played during the lighting of the Unity Candle and the Kneeling Bench.

    Here's a pic from the wedding and a couple more showing why she's mentioned here in the first place.

    And a few more for good measure: with her sister, Becky Isaacs Bowman; with her mother, Lily Isaacs, and with a fan.

    Don't we get to see their wedding cake fight? American weddings seem to require this, I never understood why

    No, we don't! Somehow the custom of feeding the other the first piece of the cake (d)evolved into something a bit more slapstick. BUT, if you go to that website, you can see them KISSING before cutting the cake. Yeah, I know ... awwwww!

    Amy Finders is one of the finest singers I've ever heard ANYWHERE. Just amazing voice.

    Bob Black and Al Murphy with them in this vid. Cool stuff.

    Agreed! We're very lucky to have Amy out here in the Front Range now. She's not playing with anybody currently (she's going back to school, I think), but makes it out to a lot of the jams. Definitely one of the best voices I've ever heard.

    And also, let's remember Freyda Epstein, who played fiddle and sang with the group on three albums, then left Trapezoid to form Freyda and Acoustic Attatude, and then left us all behind in May 2003.

    awesome to see great mic technique on such a young perfomer. Solid talent and quite a voice.

    great vid Charles.
    Hereby & forthwith, any instrument with an odd number of strings shall be considered broken. With regard to mix levels, usually the best approach is treating the mandolin the same as a cowbell.

    Any ideas on what kind of mandolin AJ is playing? I looked on the Cafe's builder site but could not make a match with the headstock.

    No mandolin ... but if that is you with the estimable Ms Stephens, this is "Woman with Mandolinist." We'll have to let the judges decide whether thatsatisfies the parameters of this thread.
