Posted a response to "Ebony versus Micarta Fretboard on McSpadden Dulcimer":
"Richlite is the new material being used to replace micarta.  Martin uses it on most of their guitars as it looks and feels like ebony and is very affordable."

Thanks Bill...I really like the Merlin. It's more comfy to play than strumsticks. Like you, I've been away for quite awhile. Time to get my MD back out and let her do some singin'!

Hi Bill,Thanks for asking about the Coshocton dulcimer festival. As usual I am scrambling around at the last minute putting the workshops together! :-) LOL!I have been seriously working on the workshop schedule and I hope to have something posted in the near future. Most teachers have already given me their workshop descriptions, I just have to figure out how to plug them all in the grid!I will try to post something to let you know when they are up, but you can still keep checking back with the festival website.Thanks again,Kendra
