Thank you, Ben, for the warm welcome. I too love Scarborough Fair and listened to your performance of it. It was very enjoyable.

Hi Ben,

I just noticed that you are in Northern Maine. We have a cottage in Bar Harbor. We will not be up again the year but we probably will be up next year in early summer and perhaps in the fall. I will try and remember to let you know. Maybe we can get together.

Chuck

Thanks Ben for your greeting.  My wife and I recently joined the local dulcimer group here in South Florida and are looking forward to the great music and fellowship.

Just completed a Folkcraft hourglass kit for my wife and am underway on a scratch built for myself.  Great retirement activity and enrichment.

Cheers,

Hank

Hi, Ben! Thank you for the welcome! And, yes, I'm down the 95 from you and look forward to connecting with others as I learn this wonderful instrument- one of few that I can manage! How're things on Kathadin?

Thanks for your friendly welcome, Ben.

I joined two dulcimer groups in February:

Off the Wall Dulcimer Society in Mechanicsburg PA,

taking lessons from Becky Askey there;

and Strung Out Dulcimer Band in Mifflintown PA.  

Neighbor Jim Hamilton in Neelyton made my dulcimer.

I look forward to learning from some of you long-time players.

Hi Ben:

I know that Pam Weeks teaches Mountain Dulcimer at the ME Fiddle Camp every summer.  She does a whole week-- which is hard for me, since I still work full time.  

I am in a ukulele group, and 2 people occasionally play, but not on a regular basis.

If I see Pam-- I may try to ask her as well.

Hi Ben:  Thank you for your welcome. I see that Scarborough Fair is one of your favorite songs too!

It's so nice to meet someone else in Maine.  Do you know if people get together to play in our state, especially now that spring is in the air!

Hi, Benjamin. In response to your question, I've worked at everything from weekly country newspapers to national magazines to The Washington Post, for whom I served as the steeplechasing columnist (horse racing page) for 10 years.

For the past six years, I've been senior editor for a division of Active Interest Media (a major publisher of hobbyist magazines) called the Equine Network. What types of stories do you write?
