    Nice. My first year - 1985 - I was just hanging out on the hill Thursday afternoon while they were tweaking the sound, and just said over the mike they could use someone to play a guitar or something to help fine tune the system. I ran down there fast as my little feet could carry me. So somewhere in the archives (probably not) is a sound check performance from yrs trly. Otherwise, with the PJB in 2001.

    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.

    Saw this on Sarah Jarosz's Facebook page and had to post it here...
    She definitely has earned a Ph.D in Mandolin!

    Thanks to Ms Loretta - Marla Fibish of Three Mile Stone. As her bio goes:

    "Marla Fibish (mandolin, mandola, button accordion and voice) has been a part of the San Francisco Irish Music scene for nearly 30 years.

    "She is known primarily as a mandolin player, for the drive and lift in her playing. She is also known as a singer, and a crafter of the odd song, and uses the mandola as her axe for accompanying her singing. Everyone is entitled to a mid-life crisis, and for Marla that was a new love in her life — the button accordion. A true San Franciscan, she went for the press-draw style — C#/D for you accordion geeks that care about such things."

    Odd how in all but one the mandolin is partially obscured. Kind of a tease, that. One pic might be the start of a whole new thread - Women With Mandolin Cases. Or not.

    I love pictures of a band that look like they are waiting for a bus. Seriously, there is all this potential adventure that is only hinted at.

    It is indeed fairly common to pose for publicity stills as if in some sort of adventure or otherwise be telling a story besides that they are musicians. No idea how/when/why this got started, but some of the results sure are fun to see.

    Hi Larry. I know, right?!
    Here are a couple more videos of her. They're a little more laid-back but equally impressive.
    My favorite part of these performances is probably the second selection in the duet video (it starts at about 2:10 in). The Morris can't help but reveal her Bluegrass roots with some nice 'chop action'...Great stuff all around!

    What's really awesome is the 2nd vid...2 ladies in Russia start playing (really well I might add) a Brazilian choro on at least 1 mandolin made in Oregon.

    Musically, I'll take the first one. After a minute or so of prologue, when she hits second and third gears, then overdrive - hang onto your hat!

    Just appeared on Jimmy Kimmel - The JaneDear Girls. A country-rock duo consisting of Susie Brown on fiddle and mandolin, and Danelle Leverett on guitar and banjo. I don't know if they're going to be the next big thing, but it was a nice surprise to see a mandolin on the tube.

    Ya think? You've got - let me see if I get all them dichotomies - one is blonde, the other brunette, one has a natural look, the other a dolled-up Bettye Page look; one likes the girly look with flouncy dresses, the other the tomboy look with jeans and shirts - well, that's a good start, anyway. Plus they can both sing, and apparently play pretty well, from what little I've heard. They may not change the world, but they might have a pretty good run.

    Very nice, Bill, thanks. I am surprised I had not seen this before. Here is another from Mary Cassatt dated 1868. The two paintings give an interesting look at the design of mandolins from that era. Renoir has a painting of a 'woman with mandolin' as well but his painting style includes less detail of the instrument.
