Thanks, Ben!

For those here who are interested in contests, you never can predict if you will win, place, or not. At 1986 Galax I played my best. Didn't place. The next year I didn't think I played as well but I won 1st there. After Mt. Airy last summer I also won 1st at Sparta and at Elk Creek and didn't place at Jefferson. Most of us are honored to participate among colleagues whose playing we admire. Ehukai and I decided to enter contests with the goal of playing our best so other musicians who play fiddles, banjos, guitars, can appreciate what the mountain dulcimer can do. We are grateful for the warm welcomes they have given the mountain dulcimer and us.

Ehukai Teves from Hawaii and I have been presenting new mountain dulcimer music and teaching. We've also been attending the great southeastern fiddle conventions - great sources for learning new music. So far this year Ehukai won the dulcimer championship at the Union Grove convention and I won 2nd. At the recent Mt. Airy, NC convention I won 1st and Ehukai won 2nd. www.DulcimerMusic.Net
