8 String Banjo Mandolin
- The mandolin-banjo should not be mistaken for the banjolin (which has only four strings), though their names are sometime interchanged. The mandolin-banjo is also known by its French name, "banjoline", but should not be confused with the Banjoline designed by Peabody.
Confusingly. August Pollman. USA had a a 5string banjo produced with a mandolin body circa 1895 (Pamela's collection) A modern version now on the market called a banjola

16 things about me
1. I was born in Glasgow in 1955. Scottish, European, British even - don't call me English! As an "honorary Portuguese" I get to vote in local and Europpean elections (and I do) but not for the parliament or the president. Not fair!
2. I'm married to Diana, my companion for the last 19 happy years.
3. I don't have children, but spend most of my working week teaching English to other people's kids. I think this helps me stay young.
4. I really enjoy teaching kids, especially in the 10-12 age group. And some former students are now grown up and still friends.
5. At other times I think they put years on me!
6. Things with strings! I love guitars, banjos, mandolins, cavaquinhos and the like. I'll never be a great player but it's given me a lot of pleasure and made friends.
7. Guitar gurus - Ry Cooder and Stefan Grossman have taught me a lot. I love Jimi Hendrix (playing as I write), Buddy Guy, the Kings (BB, Albert and Freddie) and a number of folk and blues players alive or dead.
8. I've kind of grown out of pop and rock music. What do Ilisten to? Blues, Jazz, Folk; music from Greece and the Balkans; Gypsy music from all parts; Cuban and other Latin music; African music . . . there's a whole world out there! I confess to preferring Lisbon fado to that of Coimbra.
9. I read a lot - usually with a work of fiction and one of non-fiction on the go at the same time. At the the moment - Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie (re-reading) and (just finished) a biography of George Orwell.
10. Favourite writers (dead): Robert Burns, James Joyce, RL Stevenson, Dickens, Eca de Queiroz (deserves to be world-famous!), Anthony Burgess . . .
11. Favourite writers (alive): William boyd, Ian McEwan, Jose Saramago, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Isabel Allende and lots more.
12. Films - two idiosyncratic favourites: Nic Roeg's psychological horror-thriller "Don't Look Now" and Billy Wilder's "Some Like it Hot" ( I have most of the dialogue by heart!)
13. I love cooking. My mother inspired me at an early age, and my first teaching job was in Italy, where lots of people wanted to teach me the ONLY way to make risotto, etc. . . . (but it was always different). I still cook lots of Italian food.
14. I love walking and the outdoors. In the holidays I prefer the mountains to the beach. Every weekend we try to escape to the countryside, and living in Coimbra its not too difficult.
15. I love to travel whenever possible. I'm a great fan of islands - Madeira, Azores, Canarias, Cabo Verde, S. Tome . . . Fell in love with Cuba some years ago, especially Havana and the countryside around Vinales. Didn't have digital camera in those days! There are still so many places to discover.
16. Thanks to Flickr for opening up the world a bit more and introducing me to new friends across the world!
