Show Us Your Pets!


OFF TOPIC discussions

I don't have a pet right now. However, my sister's beagle, Madison, loves the dulcimer. She has told me that she prefers the dulcimer & singing over instrumental.

This Tennessee Music Box is headed for Colorado


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Wow! I just ordered on but it's nowhere near that size. I do Civil War Living History (music). My great grandfather was a Confederate from Tennessee!

I have 4, an early Borquin, Folkcraft, Melody Maker and a Folkcraft chromatic. Actually my first was off of ebay, It was ok for beginning, I gave it away to make room for more dulcimers,

How did you first discover the mountain dulcimer?


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

My cousin built one in the early 70's. I tried it but I wasn't crazy about it. I went back to it about 10 or 12 years ago after a car accident & I could't play the guitar anymore. I was able to take a workshop with Aubrey Atwater.  I am a singer first & use my instrument as a bsck-up to my voice. During her workshop I found out I can play chords on the dulcimer! I was off & running! I'm now with a Cavil War Living History group and I sing and play period correct songs.
