Interesting.  I've been a Steeleye Span fan since about 1972-3.  My first album of theirs was "Below the Salt."  Didn't notice 'til much, much later that Tim Hart played the dulcimer on it.  He played it on a lot of their work.  I didn't discover Nicholson until after his death.  Kinda bummed me out that he was gone.  Even tho' I'd been a finger picker for years I started playing more and more in his style and using dulcimers with no "extra" frets.  l was able to contact his daughter and widow and get permission from them to use his material in my teaching.  Well, glad your enjoy his music; now let's get off here and play!

Welcome, ConnorC, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven.  There's quite a "tradition" of fingerpicked dulcimer in the UK.  I'm sure you know of the late Roger Nicholson.  If you don't check out his stuff!  Hope you enjoy it here.
