John, what a beautiful song and beautiful video!  The paintings and Dulcimer books just add so much, and the timing of the sheep painting could not have been more perfect!  Beautiful!

Thanks Robin for your comments and also thanks to all of you have given me a thumbs-up. It's great to be part of this supportive community that shares a love of the Mt. Dulicmer. I guess "Sweet music" attracts sweet people.

Beautifully played & sung, John and your paintings are delightful!  

Jean Ritchie and Larkin Bryant are two of my absolute favorite mountain dulcimer players and the books you show by them are treasures.  (I'm not familiar with the book by the Fords yet know their Manitou Springs CO shop was well-known.)
