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.

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