If he's as musical as his Da he is well fit to play with Joe O' Dowds grandson.

Was wondering Nick, do you be in touch with any others from around the country playing dulcimer. Would love to know how they are getting on.You are right Nick we will have to meet up for a tune. I'm invited down to West Cork next week- end to play a few tunes, was very excited at first but now getting the jitters so not sure what I'll do, same old story nerves setting in, have lost the ability to play in front of people, will have to try harder and ease my way back in, anyway enough moaning and in the meantime Nick keep the flag flying. Val.

Hear you are playing a storm up there Nick, and converting a lot in doing so. Hope you get to play a few tunes Nick. Enjoy, Val.

Hi Nick..That's great. As you might have guessed, I got in touch with Rick Epping and he invited us to stay a day or two. I don't have a phone yet, but I'll call ya once I arrive and pick up a burn phone.Drop by one of the gigs if you get a chance, I promise you won't hear music like we play anywhere else.Take care!

Hello Nick, and Happy New Year to all the O'Sullivans. I doubt very much if I'll be up for the Fleadh. Prefer to avoid the huge crowds, they don't suit dulcimers. Could find an excuse to visit Sligo some time this year, will keep you posted, Val.

Hi Nick, No, I wasn't in Cork for the dulcimer festivals in the early 2000's. I had moved back to the states in 1994. I briefly visited back to Cork in 2003 and played in a couple of pub sessions in Co. Cork and Co. Kerry, and the mtn. dulcimer was quite a novelty to everyone!

Hi Nick, I have a real connection with Ireland, as I lived in Co. Cork for 10 years. Once I was back in the states, here in Tallahassee, Florida, I was on the board of the Tallahassee/Sligo Sister City program. Sure would like to connect sometime!

All the best,

Linda

Rosewood !!! How the rich do live LOL, is that a sovereign or a euro in the head of that new dulcimer ???? (and I do know the answer, I used the same coin set in the boss of a bodhran a few years back) Nik, I think that he posted a tune on this a while back, and it had me fooled !

best wishes to you both

John

Hi Nik

thanks for your info. I have offered the person a Nonsuch loan instrument, she may well take me up on this.

I have a Rumanian instrument myself bought from The Music Room, which is OK, I don't know if the Hobgoblin ones are the same but I would be less comfortable with Hobgoblin as they have dreadful hammered dulcimers! How long ago was it you tried one, as people have said the Rumanian ones have got better. I bought mine 18 months ago

I really love this song (une jeune pucelle). You play it excellently on the dulcimer.
