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?

Ben, thank you so much for your welcome! I am looking forward to learning more about this wonderful instrument from the people who love it the most. :)
