General mountain dulcimer or music discussions
Bill stopped playing last year. And I can say with all the love and humility I can muster that I helped him finish his last dulcimer.
He is still kicking around Pine Mountain and Maryville. I talked with him and Barbara tonight, and they said they've been working in the garden--mostly feeding a really fat groundhog!
He's got some instruments left for sale in a shop, but I forget which one. I'll try to find out if someone is looking for one.
His ability and desire to work with any pretty wood he could find drove me to explore other woods, too, and he helped me take my building to a higher level because of that. His instruments are beautiful and play so well. They are a reflection of this kind, wonderful man.
