Don - Just looked at the calender. 2 weeks from today is the 4th of July. Do you want to change days for your lesson?
I just (accidentally) came across this website while searching for something(?) yesterday evening. I know Elizabeth from when I was involved in organizing Autumn Acoustics Music Festival that we held at Jefferson College for years. She use to attend our festival. I also had Stephen Seifert here at my house one time for a private small group lesson for teachers and Elizabeth attended. She's a neat lady and a good teacher, I am glad you found her for lessons.There aren't many of us teaching in our area. I have had a couple of students that traveled from as far asFarmington to my house for awhile. We used to have a monthly organized jam here in Desoto, MO but we stopped it last year due to lack of attendance. There may be a new one pulling together soon at Desoto Community Center. If it takes off, I can let you know about it.
Thanks for the welcome. I'm still "dulcimerless" and am debating between building one and buying one.
Thanks for the link Don Just gave it a quick glance I like what I seen heading back to give it a good look over now.
Thanks Don, I'll certainly try to get in touch with her. It might be a really good thing for some of us in Carthage to join.
Don, thanks so much! I have been out to Red Oak a couple of times and found it very fun! I hope to be coming more often as I have been recovering from surgery. I will look you up!
Hi Don Welcome to the FOTMD.
to answer your questions. Yes, I keep active with my dulcimer. It is so relaxing and the music seems to fit in out here in the woods. Our Spring get together will happen - but I don't know when exactly. My nephew decided to have his wedding on the weekend we usually have it - so we are trying to pick another time. But hey - you don't have to wait for something like that. Dulcimer players are always welcome here!
Hi Don, Yes, that would be who I had seen and welcomed a short while ago. I would say that with a name like that, there is a very good chance that you two would be related. Another thing that I do is genealogy work, as I am searching my own family out--been doing that for 20 years now. Hope that you find this site to be a good place to come.
Karen and I are pretty big fans of McSpadden...just great instruments. The Gingers are really great sounding instruments for the size. You won't be disappointed .
Hi Donald welcome to FOTMD.
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
Hey Donald and welcome to the site. This is a great place to listen to music and share ideas. I hope you enjoy!
Hey Donald, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Hi Donald, and welcome to FOTMD. It's a pretty good place to come, spend some time and to get a chance to learn about the dulcimer while meeting some good people. I'm not sure, by I think there was someone else that joined recently with the same last name.
