Hey Cyndi - thanks! Original is Valley (1867 I believe), remakes are River.    Never got around to adding anything to this, I need to though. Thanks for reminding me.

Hi Mandy,

 I love your version of this song, one of my favorites. Maybe I'm wrong but I thought it was called Down to the River to Pray.

 Looking forward to hearing the other instruments along with the dulcimer.

I have a main blog for Traditional style mountain dulcimer playing here: Mountain Dulcimer Noter-drone Blog This is an old style of playing where you only fret your notes on the melody string, while letting the drones strings ring open. In my blog, I express my personal views about playing, I offer free TAB and free beginner videos, and I try to help beginners understand in a very basic simple way the 'mysteries' of playing the mountain dulcimer in traditional modal noter/drone style.
