    I was fortunate enough to see a great Larkin Poe show this evening. Here are a few photos of Rebecca (and one with her sister Megan) I took:

    I'm shocked - shocked! - that no one thought to post this picture of Rhonda Vincent, from the NY Times article that caused all the hullabaloo over yonder. Visual proof that she can indeed play and sing.

    A vintage Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks photo with my friend, vocalist, Maryanne Price holding a mandolin. I don't think she played it but violinist Sid Page did.

    You are correct, sir. Maryann sang only. Naomi Ruth Eisenberg, holding the fiddle, sang and also played second fiddle to Sid Page, who also played mandolin - very likely the one Maryann is holding. Looks a lot like the one on the cover of "Where's The Money?" In fact, that song is one which featured the pairing of those two instruments.

    I remember seeing Sid with Sly Stone performing on some TV show in the 90's. Seemed like an odd pairing. RIP

    Journeybear,

    You are right of course, I should have spelled her name correctly: Maryann. Either way, a great singer and fine band.

    All the best,

    Gee, Paul, I wasn't aware of any conscious effort to correct your spelling. I just dug out my treasured LP and had it in front of me as I typed. No worries. If anything, I am jealous of your being able to count her or anyone in that outfit as a friend. I've met Dan a few times, as I was involved with an organization that booked him and the Acoustic Warriors a few times, and I'm a facebook friend with Sid but that's about it. BTW, a year or so ago by some circuitous route I discovered her website and that she was still active.

    Maryann is a great singer. She does some excellent work on Tom Morrell's "Jugglin Cats" album.

    I had to post these, as they are some of the highest quality mandolin performance photos I've seen!
    Sarah Jarosz from her performance on Austin City Limits debuting this weekend (11/5).
    An article about Sarah (and the complete photo gallery) can be seen here.
    Enjoy!

    The cello player with Sarah Jarosz is Mississippi's own Nat Smith, who tours regularly with Natalie McMasters. Through hard work and talent, this sixteen year old young man has a lot of people's attention. Nat grew up in a musical family. His father Wayne is a great mandolin player. Here is a photo of Nat with Chris Thile and Bella Fleck.

    I KNEW I'd seen him somewhere before; I saw him playing with Natalie when she came to George Mason two Christmases ago. He's got some impressive cello chops.

    I happened to stumble upon that Austin (ACL) show and Sarah was wonderful - glad I know now.

    Finally, imagine your daughter being asked to dress that way for a concert at school because it will help draw a crowd... it doesn't feel quite right.

    How would the guys feel if a bluegrass band had a guy with a models body playing in a speedo to help attract women who thought the music might be corny? We would probably think it's odd, not right, not bluegrass whatever... not having the same mindset for female performers is the double standard where the women similarly built to their male counterparts are taken less seriously. This is a great thread not only to present female mandolinists but also to raise some issues that we may not think of very often.

    Here's a chick in underwear playing mandolin.... Refering to a woman that way is a means of dehumanizing her.

    edit: how people choose to perform is, a choice. I'm only on a soap box because this is a family site with a wide audience (genders and ages). There are plenty of other places to find and discuss things more lasciviously.

    The Burns Sisters came up in a conversation last night, and I had to go to their website in order to refresh my memory as to which one I used to have a crush on. Never mind which, that was just a plot device which brought me to the following: Marie Burns with an emando. It's been ten years since I've seen them, and I don't recall her playing mandolin, so this may be a recent addition to the act - which was always A-OK by me, three-part sibling harmonies and all that. these are from the 2006 Philadelphia Folk Festival. And apparently Terri Hendrix was there too, at a workshop, with her unique mandolin.

    If you're keeping track, that is Annie Burns as well in pics #1 and #3, in which also Jimmy LaFave and Joel Rafaell appear; Eliza Gilkyson is in the pictures with Terri
