Love My English Setters! And my dulcimers! We retired last year on our 5 acre micro-farm & love that too (hubby a former professor at MSU in Morehead, Ky). Have been playing dulcimer for 2 & 1/2 years at our local dulcimer club & in a mixed instrument acoustic jam group-I play a little guitar, too, but find the dulcimer always more fascinating. I like to go to a few dulcimer festivals every year; Ky music week, Homer Ledford festival, Don Pedi retreat in NC. New challenges: working w/another dulcimer player on duet performances-yikes! & organizing contra dances in Morehead.
