I live in southern Indiana with my wonderful husband of two years, our adorable nine month old son, our fat and lazy 14-year-old cat, and our psychotic but loveable two-year-old cat. Although I don't have as much time for playing as I used to, I love playing my mountain dulcimer, fiddle, and am learning the bowed dulcimer and bowed psaltery.

Hi Kim, I am Robin Thompson's cousin. I am the beginner who just got a new hour glass Folkroot for Christmas. One of my books is by Larkin Bryant. Robin says if I have any questions that you are the source I should go to. I just wanted to ask you if you would mind if I need advice. Robin has been great and helping me everytime I go back to Ohio. She's. My inspiration. Thanks so much, Carol Coulter

Hey, Kim--

Thank you, thank you for your kind comment about "In for the Night"! Mark and I put the duo together yesterday-- we've had fun making up these duet tunes. Smile.gif

Glad you got home safely today!

Hugs,

Robin

Hi Kim, thanks for the friend invite. I enjoyed my lessons from Larkin Bryant, just wish I had been a better student and had stuck with it. I originally thought it was in 1999, but it was 1990 and 91. I am really starting over and enjoying myself. Wish she was here in East TN! I will check out your playing to inspire me :-)

Thanks, Kimberly! I found the melody in an original manuscript archived in the UCLA Music Library. At the time of the passing of the old Gaelic order, the traditional harp music of Ireland was leaning more toward European-influenced music and the old harpers were dying without their music being written down.

In order to preserve the national music, three festivals were arranged offering prizes to lure the harpers in from the countryside. At the 1792 festival, a 19-year old 'practical musician' was hired to write down their music. This melody was played by two of the harpers - 97-year-old Denis Hempson, who played in the traditional way with long crooked fingernails, and 15-year-old William Carr from County Armagh.

Glad you liked it - it is my 'soothe' the spirit after a rough day tune!

Dulcimerrily,

Gwen

Hi Kim, Gee, I am so sory to hear about your broken wrist. I know it is painful and dashes all your plans. I know you would be a GREAT teacher. Watching your video I can truthfully say that you are a master!! I will never be able to teach myself to play as good as you and there is no one here to take leasons from. What I have learned so far has been mostly self taught. The class at Shenandoah help some. I have just taught myself 'Pastures of Plenty' by Woody Gurthrie but have to try to get permission from the copyright holder to post it on the site. I tried it in DAA tuning and thought it was right, but the more I played it, it just didn't sound exactly right, so tuned it to DAC and it really helped. Anyway, I wish you a speedy recovery and would like to add that when I first heard Steven Siefert (maybe misspelled) I thought he was the best, but having heard you play, I can honestly say that you are now the best. You are so lucky to have a teacher nearby to give you tips and show youtechniques and, of course, to have the musical ability also. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Kim,

Yay for a smaller cast! You are in my thoughts and prayers; I'm grateful you weren't hurt worse. Blessings to you, my friend!

Hugs,

Robin

HI Kim. Listened to some of your videos. Gee, I pale in comparrison. So you are now on break. Are you teaching or still taking classes? Simply love your playing. For me, maybe in about 2 (or) more years.

I just had to laugh when I read 'My instruments are going to be the deAth of me'.I can relate. So glad you liked my version of 'SweetHour of Prayer'. I am currently working on 'Wings of a Dove' and have it figured out, just have to practice it now. I will try to post it on 'Everything Dulcimer' bit was told that it was probably copyrighted. So, did some research to see if what I would do would be an infringment. I found that there is a 'Fair Use' permit which can be used. Besides, we aren't trying to sell anything or take anything away from anyone.

Hi Kim. Thank you for being my friend here. I believe you asked what my cat's names were. They are Basket and Boo-boo. Basket because he always finds a basket to lie in. and Boo Boo because he is white (like a ghost) and he had a boo-boo on his leg when I found him. It has since healed and the hair has grown over it. They are inseparable. i love this site. There are so many nice people here.
