    All right, digging through a few more of my antique photos:

    Charlene and Donald. I believe that she is playing a Bacon reverse scroll mandolin.

    Rushden Mandolin Band from around 1910. Top pictures is leader Rose Holmes.
    Here's a clipping from The Rushden Echo, 11th February 1916

    Belgian House

    A concert was given to the refugees on Tuesday by the Mandolin Band, assisted by Miss Pettit and Mr. Chas Bailey. Mr. J. S. Clipson presided. Programme: March, Camp Parade, Band; song, Songs of home, Miss F. Pettit; mandolin solo, Intermezzo, Miss E. Young; song, The Rosary, Mr. Bailey; selection, Medley March, Band, pianoforte solo, Miss M. Percival; mandola solo, Calma Della Sera, Miss E. Upton; song, Miss F. Pettit; quartet, Mrs. Knight, Misses R. Holmes, L. Neal and E. Upton; mandolin solo, Miss Ivy West; song, Roses, Mr. Bailey; mandolin duet, Darkey’s patrol, Misses Holmes and Neal; National Anthems of the Allies, Band. M. Vanbush, one of the refugees, expressed thanks to the chairman and artistes, and said that such concerts helped them to forget the deprivations they had suffered.

    Here is the program for Kanae Akagi's upcoming concert in Tokyo on January 28:

    Grand Sonata for Mandolin: Johann Hummel
    Jyongara: Yukio Kuwabara
    Andante and Polonaise no. 1: Nicola Maria Calace
    Concerto for Mandolin and Piano no. 2: Rafaele Calace

    Almost worth the price of a ticket to Tokyo!

    Does anyone know when and where "Choro Das 3" will be touring? I've checked their website and subscribed to there mailing list but have not come across any dates yet.

    In that picture of Agatha Christie, she looks older than 8. Her hands look too big and not soft and pudgy like most 8 year olds. But then again, it is a small mandolin.

    I think you'll find that wasn't a mandolin. I love adding another Monroe picture to the Cafe

    I guess my eyes were somehow averted, and I wasn't looking that closely at the instrument . . . .

    Holy Cow! I just stumbled across this Molly Tuttle video for the first time earlier today, and have been hooked on it ever since. it is just too funny that it showed up here 8 hours later - especially since I was considering adding it myself! Thank you!

    The new Jenni Lyn video just out. She's the subject of an interview we're working on but it'll be several weeks. It's not the one coming this Sunday we referred to in another post.
