    I see that Mary Cassatt returned to this theme. Here is another painting and a drawing. The last one may be by Manet.

    She also painted a few similarly-themed works with banjos. I won't be posting those here!

    Seems about time to add this photo of Lorraine Duisit from the back cover of Trapezoid's album "Now & Then." Just in case.

    Aha ... on closer inspection, it's been shown before. Well, too much is never enough, where she is concerned.

    How about some newer imagery of Lorraine Duisit? Here's her Bandcamp photo, and the album cover of her most recent album, 2020's "In My Heart I am Dancing." Plus a detail.

    I’ve had this postcard for many years, picked it up in an antique shop. The painting is by AK Kroy, entitled ‘Goldelse’

    We lifted the mandolin from the painting and put it in the lap of another woman on our ‘Mandoliniment cd’Click image for larger version.

    Here's a fun pic Tom Rozum took of a Wiens F5 #37 a few years back. I don't know who the lady is but she indulged Tom's request for a fun little photo shoot with his mandolin.

    Donna Stoneman was such a nice lady the couple of times I spoke to her. She was quite the pioneer in her day.

    Way to many pages to go through and she may be mentioned, but I recently ran across the band sister Sadie. Tina Adair is a terrific mandolin player. It appears she is playing a Sim Daley mandolin. As a footnote Dale Ann Bradley is usually the guitar player and does vocals as well. Click image for larger version.

    Her set was a bit disappointing, in that she played mandolin on the first song only. The rest of the time it sat in its stand on the drum riser - so we could see it - while she played guitar and sang. I guess she's reinventing herself as a singer-songwriter. I hope she doesn't abandon the mandolin entirely. I doubt she will, but for now it seems to have been demoted, so to speak.

    Here's a dandy cover of Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" by AJ Lee and the Brothers Comatose. AJ is a great player and singer, and the BC provide superb backup and harmonies.

    Cool, I've always liked that song. Good version, and nice to see some Gibson flattops, or what appear to be. So are all those guys actually brothers? Kinda looks like it.

    You need but ask, or go two clicks from the youtube: "The Brothers Comatose is comprised of brothers Ben Morrison (guitar, vocals) and Alex Morrison (banjo, vocals), Steve Height (bass), Philip Brezina (violin), and Greg Fleischut (mandolin, vocals)." Guess one of these guys also plays banjo.

    PS: Grammar nerds will tell you that, although it's in wide usage, "comprised of" is technically incorrect. The correct formation should be either "is composed of" or simply "comprises." But this misuse is so common it's becoming acceptable. Same, sadly, with "irregardless," which I find abhorrent. Language is not set in stone, and sometimes words get used incorrectly to an overwhelming extent, so that common usage outweighs common sense. A double negative is still a double negative, regardless of how many people ignore this. Yes, I'm well aware that many people hereabouts will say that ain't no part of nothing - and they may be right.

    The whole comprises its parts - I like to get that right, too. So I'd probably beat those guys at grammar, but definitely not at music. We're all good at something.

    Trying to correct thread drift, for which I'm partially responsible ...

    There have been reports a rebroadcast of this show has been making the rounds on PBS. Rhonda Vincent cohosting can only be a good thing. Scroll down to see who is playing what and how much of it there is. I hope it comes to one of my PBS stations. Hope some of you get so lucky. Check your local listings.
