I found my way to the dulcimer due to an interest in American folk music and the work of the much-loved Jean Ritchie. I own a nice Yocky, a McSpadden ginger, and two dulcimers made by my ex-partner, with whom I still play music. I also sing, and play banjo, guitar and ukulele.... But not all at once..... 

Dulcimers are a rare thing in the UK so it is good to have some online links to this worldwide secret society!

Hello Jane, long time no hear ! Dare I say that it shows that you have been busy, 'cos I venture to guess you are unaware of my current situation, ie, I have become a full time carer, my wife had a bad fall at the beginning of the year, completely smashed her shoulder joint (not considered repairable) and during various treatments it was discovered that she had advanced hyperparathyroid calcaemia. This, coupled with already existing osteoporis, leaves her almost completely dependant on me, so no time for music at all , instruments gather dust as our day just seems to disappear, so lovely tho' it would have been to see you both, I have have to say 'no' to your suggestion. You might try John Shaw, his world revolves around his music, so I am sure that he would be glad to see you !

my apologies, and very best wishes

John

"Another fine mess you've got me into" Foggers!

"Irresistable rogue, glint in his eye" !!! I do so hope that Richard was able to truely smooth the handle of that wooden spoon you are using so deftly, I would hate to think that your fingers were sore from all the stirring you have been doing lately !!!

Have a good Christmas you two 36.gif

Likewise Foggers. Face to Face is much better --- Pity about the weather tho'. I Had a good time . Left Huddersfield about 5.15pm and was home by 7.15 pm . People were driving awful slow (70) and there was a long 50 mph section with average speed cameras which was annoying. The rain held off as well. i know this may be read by others but I felt a bit overpowered by the hammers. But they were good and there was some nice tunes . Liked the slide by the way Grin.gif. Never know we might do it again in the sweet by and by . Take care , the pair of you

Foggers, hi! I probably won't be at the Huddersfield bash - I was thinking about it, but at that stage I was expecting to have a dulcimer that was in one piece!

Foggers , I hope to get to the Huddersfield bash, It'll be a long haul but I will try. I don't know anybody who will be there but I will have my Case ( see photos on my page)so You will be able to recognise me, I will try and stick a FOTMD sign on it as well. Just pray for good weather, not too much wind, and a reasonable temperature so our fingers don't freeze . Anyway I need some lessons-- dave H

Hi, Yes, I don't suppose there are all that many of us in the uk. Certainly not very many in Scotland, that's for sure! I've never been anywhere locally with the dulcimer without being repeatedly asked, 'Whats that?'

Best regards,

Doug

Good to hear you & Richard are faring okay, Jane! And one does wonder whether weather events of Biblical proportion will come to be the norm. . .Take good care.

Hi, Jane!Weather in the UK has made national news here-- and I've seen the comments on the UK/Europe group here at FOTMD. Hope you and Rich are well and safe! Perhaps you're getting to play more music since you've been house-bound.all my best,Robin

Jane, it was good to meet you, and I hope that it will happen again. A question. You did'nt really indicate whether you liked the concept of playing HD ?John

Foggers !!! You kept that (Hayes) close to your chest, congratulations, hope to see you there and sit in on your beginners workshops !Can I persuade you to join our UK group here on FOTMD? Trying to achieve some level of 'solidarity' as we seem to be dispersed all over the place. I trust that you are protecting your hands while 'doing up' your new pad. Incidentally I have recently purchased a Zoom Q3, not what you would choose to use I guess, but it allows me to make a slightly better vid, all I have to do is get to know it better. ( A workshop on recording and Audacity for thicko's ???)

Hi FoggersTrust that either of the Bristol Johns have already persuaded you to join us at the Alfreton (Hayes Centre) annual Nonsuch get together in November (www.dulcimer.org.uk/index.html). Love to have someone who can bring along as many dulcimers as me and John Shaw!Geoff Black

Are you snowed (or iced) in at the moment. Looks as though we are here in Mansfield. Plenty of time for practising instruments
