I do believe that holiday songs are much like potato chips - you can't do just one. :-) This is Tull Glazener's enchanting arrangement of "Toyland". Performed on a Folkcraft baritone MD tuned A-e-a.

Well, this got me researching and I found a site that I read the whole site tonight.  I was VERY SURPRISED to read that Bonnie and Clyde had a dulcimer.  oh wow, and were recorded singing with it.  I'd love to hear their 3 recordings.  This is a well written site and not too long to read....he also makes beautiful dulcimers.  Thanks again for playing your baritone for us all.  Merry Christmas, irene

Dulcimer Dave:

Wow! I've never heard a baritone dulcimer before and now I want one!  Your playing is superb. Thank you.

I sure do appreciate that - thank you, Dave!  If you haven't heard a baritone before, check out fellow member Gordon Hardy.  And the bonus is his marvelous baritone voice to match!

Beautiful Christine! Perfect hot chocolate music!


Thank you, Dean!  It was the ice rink scene, yes?  Long ago I spent many hours skating in frigid temps...and drinking hot chocolate!  These days, the skating not so much.  The hot chocolate?  Oh yeah!!!  coffee
