    This is Sally Dige who asked if we'd include her new single and we're happy to. Mandolin makes an appearance part way through.

    Yes, that's correct. Ced made Leanne's mandolin.

    Terrific UK band, The Magpies (they've now dropped the Bella, Polly and...prefix) from Yorkshire.
    The Mando player is Polly Bolton, from York.

    I am not into tattoos, but wouldn't this make a great one?

    The sister to the right appears as if she's deeply concerned....perhaps she spied a banjo player nearby?

    I found this while exploring museums online. The painting is resident in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It is dated about 1633 and appears to be a celebration related to a successful hunt. You can explore the museum website here: https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/nl/mijn/v...#/SK-A-4844,27

    No, when I inserted the photo I didn't realize it wouldn't display the mandolin at the lower left of the painting. It just doesn't display in the post. You'll have to follow the link to see the mandolin. It may not be a mandolin, but it's a mandolin-like object. Sorry.
