Thank you for sharing your musical journey.
Hey, Beth, I work at David C. Brown Funeral Home. You may have heard of it!
I build traditional dulcimores (dulcimers) on my days off, and sell them to some of the folks at this site. I don't teach or even play that much, but I love to keep the old traditions alive the best I can!
Hi, Beth. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you a month ago. I've never been Evart. During my working life I didn't have the time off to do it and since retiring thirteen years ago I've been busy with other pursuits and not attending many festivals. I've mostly been concentrating on traditional dulcimer style playing and doing research on pre-dulcimer instruments and building them. In August I will be heading to Michigan with family to visit the UP and our old college campus.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
