Hi. I am looking for some info/links on local magazines and booklets that cover 'Folk' affairs in your area of Great Britain. I am putting together for Nonsuch Dulcimers a list of publications that Dulcimer event organisers could easily access to advertise any events, workshops meet ups etc. For example In my area there is a free magazine called Unicorn ( ) which covers beds, herts , cambs and Bucks.
the aim of this project is to help promote intest and knowledge of the dulcimer (both mountain and hammered). If you have a similar publication in your area could you post the link here or email it to me via FOTMD to help me compile a nationwide list? I would be most grateful for any assistance.
regards Marion

Thanks Geoff,

Any idea what its worth?Not sure what to be asking

You should try and re-post this in the Sale section of the website if you haven't already (in the Forum section).

If you have no direct offers in, say, 10 days, get back to me and I'll give you a fair price for it.  I buy and sell the odd dulcimer!
