I was very sad to read on another forum of the untimely death yesterday of Alison Stephens, world renowned classical mandolinist, from cancer. I had only seen her perform once, last year, at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, but it was an inspiring experience, for her sheer artistry with a variety of different mandolins, the enthusiastic and interesting background information given on each instrument, and the warmth of her personality. RIP Alison.

Very sad news, not unexpected, given the recent information on 'mandolin cafe'. Alison Stephens was a marvelous mandolinist.

I had not heard of her, but, reading the obituary, I have heard her music. How very sad the world has lost such a talented and warm musician.

My condolences to all of her family, friends, and fellow musicians.

Alison was the helf-sister of one of my closest friends, and I first met her when she was in her teens. She was a magnificently gifted musician, and a delightful person to know. She gave a concert with my late father in the early 90s and I was also priviledged to have her perform at my own wedding reception.

I was truly devasted to hear of her illness and untimely death. My heartfelt sympathies to her mother Jackie and her partner and the rest of the family.

Ali taught my ten year old son to play the guitar, we all loved her & are devastated that she is no longer with us. We are so grateful to her not only for her fantastic, enthusiastic & patient teaching, but also for introducing our family to the beauty of mandolin her playing. She will be very much missed.

Terrible news...I cannot believe it. I can still see Alison in the market in Dubai before we played for the Sheik. Watching tv on the plane over the Zagros Mountains with champers as Alison said in her best accent "Don't worry Neil my owl mate! They ain't gonna shoot us down, not til' we've played!" God bless you Alison, your great fun personality and your music will be missed by us all. Your life was so special. xxx Neil

I will always miss your smiling face and your 'can do attitude'. I enjoyed every mandolin lesson with you and felt that my life was enriched from knowing you. Rest In Peace in the 'River Of The White Swan' my warm and spiritual friend.

Wow! How unfortunate! I loved her playing and had hoped to be able to hear her someday live. What a shame.

Heaven has a new mandolinist.

Peace, Mooh.
