Does anybody know (or can anybody guess) what instrument she has played for over 40 years (pic was taken in the 1970s, but she's still going strong).  No cheating with Google! 

(Hint: it's a fairly unusual musical instrument for a female to play in the broad category of pop/rock/soul/jazz):

Without being sure who it is, a guess is all that can be had. I'd go for drums since the female drummer was and remains a rarity.

Unusual instrument for a woman to play in general (i cant think of anything usual for a woman to play or why it would be) or for anyone to play in a pop/jazz/soul/rock? Im going for the kazzoo which would be an unusual intrument to appear in a band.

Is that Phoebe Snow? I'm not sure what she played...nothing unusual, I'm pretty sure.
For a minute I thought it might be Alice Coltrane but she's dead! Plus I don't think I'd ever seen her dress like that...
Good question! I don't think I wanna guess what she played without being sure who she is.

If it is Phoebe Snow, she was a guitarist, and I don't think female guitarists are that unusual...

I admit, I already cheated, and the answer's really cool.

Haha I can't figure out HOW to cheat, or I'd have done so to satisfy my own curiosity! (Google goggle? That's beyond my technical knowhow) I notice Funny Paper's not currently online...dunno how long I can wait for an answerrrrr...

SPOILER ALERT!!!

 

Well, I guess enough people have tried, so I can give the answer.  No, that's not Phoebe Snow -- it's Cynthia Robinson, trumpet player for the Sly and the Family Stone group.

Oh damn, I kinda recognize her now! Had no idea she was still going strong...no idea she did anything in music after the first few Family Stone albums, actually.
