Hi Ocean Daughter

I've signed up for some workshops at the Albany Festival and this will be my first festival either online or physical ! I'm in UK so I've had to be cautious with times. Not sure the neighbours will appreciate dulcimers in the middle of the night. As a newbie I shall be focusing on the beginners sessions.

Maybe see you but whatever have a fun time.

Regards

Mick

Welcome Ocean-Daughter to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Glad you joined. This is a great place to interact with other dulcimer enthusiasts. Look around, make yourself at home. Join in the discussions. Ask questions. Best wishes on your dulcimer journey.

Welcome to FOTMD, Ocean-Daugher. It is good to have you aboard. I look forward to your participation in these discussions. There was, and maybe still is, a dulcimer presence in Monrovia. It was centered around The Doll Makers store which is no longer in business. There is a dulcimer maker, player, and teacher in Culver City.

 Contact her. She may know of players in the Altadena area.

Hi Ocean, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
