I'm a music geek. I own the DVD. Had I only known then that it would be available online for free. D'oh!

I'm sure there are lots of dulcimer players on here who have never seen this video on the people and music of Appalachia. Excellent sound and visual quality with sub-titles for those who might not be accustomed to the various accents. History, music-appreciation, instrument know-how, dance instruction, and the "heart for arts" that's in the blood of these people--all with a real "meet your neighbors" feel to it! You will, no doubt see folks on here you've either heard of or have had the pleasure to meet and hear in person (like Sheila Kay Barnhill Adams) Enjoy!
