Profile Information

My interests in music and in mountain dulcimers:
I play lap dulcimer, banjo, Cretan Lyra, limberjacks....mostly play at home with my fiddling husband, and with friends. I also enjoy playing medieval tunes.
Where and how I first saw or heard a mountain dulcimer...
at a folk music jam about 17 years ago.
My website (if I have one):
Why I want to join Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer
Stumbled into it. :)

A little about myself...

I like playing old-time music with my husband and our friends. Fiddle, banjo, old ballads, mountain dulcimer, and traditional international tunes are my favorites to listen to. I play mountain dulcimer, both old-time and minstrel era banjo, and love 'playing' limberjacks as well.
I like bicycling, vegetable gardening, beekeeping, my cats, yoga, snowshoeing, contra & square dancing, and having breakfast in my favorite cafe in our little town. :)

Thank you so much, Lisa! I played that on my Dorsey Williams dulcimer, which Keith bought from Richard Latker's vast collection. On a video Richard made right after he sold it to Keith, Richard called its sound very special. I'd have to agree. It's one of my favorites, along with my vintage Folk Roots, which you've also remarked about. They were both anniversary gifts from Keith. :-)
