Hello, Colleen,

   See the note below from Wendy Songe.  As you’ll read, the workshops/concert on Monday, August 14, in DuBois, are now canceled.   Please pass this information along to your students and patrons.  Wendy asks for prayers, and we can certainly do that for her.  The Wendy I've known from workshops is a lively ball of energy; the illness that's gotten her down must be wicked.  Please keep her in your thoughts.

Subject: August workshops


Dear Ginny,

I regret to send you such tragic news, but I must. I have been living on the road and touring my music for the summer since the beginning of June.  The last few weeks though, I haven't been feeling myself at all and decided to return home to seek answers. It turns out, I have a medical issue that requires immediate attention and the outcome is uncertain. At this time, I have been faced with a very difficult decision to cancel all of my remaining gigs and tour dates for the remainder of 2017. I am so very sorry for this inconvenience, as I know both you and your husband have worked diligently to make our August club workshop day a big success. It is NOT in my nature to cancel on my responsibilities and I have NEVER canceled a gig in all the years I have been touring. Unfortunately though, I am without other options at this time. Prayers are appreciated. I certainly appreciate you and hope that my circumstances will not burden you. 

In harmony,
🎶 Wendy Songe

Colleen,

So glad you were able to attend our Day with Nina Zanetti.  I, too, had a great time, and learned much.  I'm glad it was worth your effort--yours was a long drive that day!

Ginny

Colleen, that's awesome that your group played at the nursing home today! I have played at different ones a few times over the years...they are a wonderful audience...and SO appreciative of your music. The gift you give them is much more than the music! And the gift to you is so much more than making and sharing music!Keep strumming and smiling!Cindy

You are more than welcome to try any of my instruments any time, beginner or not. They are for playing around with. It's all about having fun.

Hello. I was just looking at your photo of your jeans and noticed my dulcimers set up in the background. That photo was taken at Cranberry. LOL.

Hi Colleen, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn and exchange ideas about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.

Welcome, Colleen, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Friendly folks, yep, a bunch of them here. Knowledgeable? You'll have to be the judge of that. Ask your questions in a discussion, chat or email to a "friend;" you'll probably get more responses than you bargained for. LOL. Hope you enjoy it here.
