Hi @Phroedrick and thanks for your comments  I played this song with my local dulcimer group for some time before making this recording, so I was pretty familiar and confident with the arrangement.

I’m currently working on this piece and it’s great to hear it played so nicely.

Thanks, Val.  Both are songs I've been playing for a while.  Too often I get a new song and rush to share it before it's really polished.

Love your latest contributions Dusty, Skye Boat Song and Fanny Power played with great precision and feeling.

Thanks, Jennifer and Steven.  Jennifer, Terry McCafferty has been making dulcimers for years, but he also had a job as an industrial engineer.  He recently retired and began making dulcimers full time. They are not cheap, but they are beautiful to look at and to listen to, and a joy to play.

Very nice,  Dusty!  McCafferty dulcimers seem to be popping up quite a bit these days.  It sounds lovely!
