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):
http://dulcimer-noter-drone.blogspot.com/
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. :)

I was able to find Dave v. In the Las Vegas area but not the second person. I have searched all your suggestions. With only Dave coming up. Also I have tried to use his website to contact him but the site comes up on Google looking like a scam. Just thought you might want to know. Thanks again

Strumelia, I had advertised my Folkcraft Hickory dulcimer and someone from here asked me if I would accept a lower price. I did go to Everything Dulcimer website, not knowing he had just become a member and continued to ask me about my dulcimer. It took several e-mails before we reached a mutual decision and he purchased the dulcimer. I feel horrible because I did out it here on this board, although It went on ED first. How do I send you the money even tho it did not really consummate here? I feel terrible because I gave bought and sold here before. Please accept my deepest apologies.
