Thanks, Dan! I will give that a try.
Beautiful! Does dulcimer tab or sheet music exist for this tune? Is it in copyright? I did a quick Google search and found some recordings and guitar chords.
This is my take on the traditional tune, again it is arranged in Dorian.

Thank you all!
This tune is new to me, Dan, and your play of it is just lovely! The timbre of your instrument adds such nice coloring to the tune.
Dan,I just love the sound of your long scale Dulcimores! I'm saving my pennies for one ( I did just spend 2$ on a lottery ticket, so when I win the 900 million I'll be ordering several!).
I've got a number of versions of this tune and love them all, but my favorite is the version done by Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman:
I've never heard this tune before and it is lovely! Thanks for sharing.
Many thanks guys! (I'll have to look up Vinegar Pie)
Dan, good to hear this ballad is alive and well. I have a recording of it, can't recall by whom. Thanks for posting it. Also bringing back memories, seeing that you're in New Tazewell, TN--Clinch Mountain and Vinegar Pie.
Haunting and beautiful!!!
I've always loved this tune. Very nice version!
Very beautiful playing, Dan, with a lovely crystal-clear sound!
