A place for traditional noter and drone style Appalachian dulcimer players and beginners. Feel free to post your comments and questions at the end of each post by clicking on "comments". Welcome, friend!
My very best wishes to all of my friends and to the musical readers here whom I may never meet or play music with. May you stay warm and cheerful through the cold winter snows, and may the coming year be healthful and full of opportunities to show kindness towards those less fortunate and alone.

This blog was started on Feb 14th 2009. Look right below here TO CLICK ON THE POSTS SORTED BY DATE, and read posts from the earliest dates forward.

I like old-time and early music. Fiddle, banjo, old ballads, limberjacks, mountain dulcimer, and minstrel banjo.
I like playing music, bicycling, yoga, vegetable gardening, beekeeping, contra dancing, cats, snowshoeing, and having breakfast in my favorite cafe with friends.
