To really showcase the Bill Taylor, I'd need some pictures.  The quilted maple is stunningly elegant. Thanks for taking the time to comment, @jan-potts.

Played with a lot of feeling, Dusty!  This really showcases your Bill Taylor dulcimer!

Thanks, Val. I appreciate your taking the time to comment.  I find a lot of these old ballads and airs very soothing. coool  No pressure to play "up to speed" like those evil reels and jigs that keep mocking me tongue because I can't keep up!

Dusty, though I'm not much of a singer it doesn't always stop me. nod
