I live in Olney, England (the home of Amazing Grace) and I have been playing mountain dulcimer for over 40 years.  Although I use modal tunings, my favourite tuning is Ionian (DAA but more commonly EBB), which I use much of the time. My dulcimers have a diatonic scale with no half frets and only three strings.  I play almost exclusively finger-style and my repertoire is a mixture of songs and airs, based on traditional songs from the British Isles as well as original instrumentals.  I have released 5 CD albums to critical acclaim and undertaken 15 international tours to date, mostly to the USA.  Visit my website to learn more about my playing, teaching and recordings www.english-dulcimer.com - visit my website blog for a variety of dulcimer resources and my You Tube Channel to see films of me playing.

Hi Dan, I've been sending you some messages, but the Mailgun email.notification system says the following, so you may not be getting any site notifications unless your IP address gets changed.  Sorry, there's nothing I can do about this unless you contact your provider or change your IP:

Thanks Dan ... we also fondly remember our visit to Olney ... sorry about the rabbit remark if it offended you ... I honestly didn't mean to ... we're headed over to visit our kids in October but have no "plan" ... we are going to Wales for 3-4 days while the kids are out of school and we can't stay as long as we'd like due to other commitments but thanks for the offer! Hugs.
