2nd January and just feeling like it’s 2014… Happy New Year to you all!

Fellow mandolinist and historian of the instrument Paul Sparks has sent me this absorbing article on the ladies’ mandolin bands of the Victorian era. Click here to view the PDF complete with some impressive photos.

Paul has also performed much of the music, in particular that of Clara Ross. Here are some video clips of him with John Mackenzie (guitar):

l’Allegro (1895)

Air de Ballet (c. 1895)

Sancta Maria (1892)

Narcisse (1894)
