Hearts Of The Dulcimer Podcast - Episode 16
Blues on Dulcimer

 

256

 

On the surface, it seems that the mountain dulcimer is not an instrument created for playing the Blues. The impression of the dulcimer’s sweet simple sound seems that it would be too gentle to express the raw feelings evoked with the Blues. Additionally, the dulcimer’s diatonic fret pattern often doesn’t have the notes that are in the pentatonic Blues scale. Needless to say, it takes creativity and persistence to play the Blues on the dulcimer.

With guests John Keane, Chris Shoemaker, and Bing Futch. Additional music from Steve Eulberg and Steven K. Smith.

256

 

Steve Eulberg is a multi-instrumentalist who plays and sings traditional songs and fiddle tunes; weaving together Celtic, Old-Time, blues, and jazz on both the mountain dulcimer and hammered dulcimer. He runs the website Dulcimer Crossing, which provides hundreds of online video dulcimer lessons by several known dulcimer teachers.

Thanks Dusty, we appreciate your support! Thanks for listening. I'm sure our paths will cross again!

 

Dusty Turtle:

Patricia and Wayne, I finally had a chance to listen to the Neal episode. Even though I've seen your film countless times and enjoyed innumerable conversations with Neal directly, I still found the podcast both informative and entertaining. You managed to get some details out of him that he doesn't often reveal.  Your choice of music is also impeccable.  Although I have all of Neal's CDs and many of the Gourd Music titles (including the Shaker trilogy) I still came away from your podcast with a renewed respect for the "sometimes folk, sometimes classical, always acoustic" or "folk baroque" vision with which Neal infuses all the Gourd Music recordings. 

 

I haven't seen you guys in a while but I hope our paths cross again soon.

Hi Lexie, Wow, that's so touching! I'll share your words with her family, I know that will warm their hearts. Judy was a wonderful person and we're so glad we had an opportunity to know her. 

Thanks for listening!

 

Lexie R Oakley:

I have been catching up on the pod casts; thank you for introducing me to a beautiful soul Judy Klinkhammer. She was quite a pioneer there in the mountains. I really appreciate her spirit for her music and how she shared it with anyone.

 

What an inspirational woman with the MD and her life with passing on music.

Patricia, I love the video you posted of Erin.  The audio quality is amazing.  Is that your little mic I see attached to her dulcimer? It was nice to meet her on her trip to Cali this summer.

After I finish a little work and pour a glass of wine, I'll be listening to your latest podcast.  Thanks for all you do to celebrate the dulcimer!

This episode has lots of great music as well as entertaining stories about being a dulcimer player.

Ooh! I've been looking forward to this! I'll post a (positive) review on iTunes soon.

From the podcast, I was inspired to check out both Joni Mitchell's and Mimi & Richard Fariña's music and got to know a little bit about a lot of people active in the mountain dulcimer community, so I am very grateful. I decided to start playing the dulcimer a few weeks ago, and the podcast definitely played a part in that decision.

Thank you, Sheryl. Recently I was able to examine the instruments (PA German zithers) in the collection of the Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum that are pictured in L. Allen Smith's "A Catalogue of Pre-Revival Appalachian Dulcimers." Unfortunately none of zithers are on public display. While doing so I found that there is another one in the collection that Allen did not examine. Perhaps it was not there when he visited. I also examined that one taking photos, measuring, and tracing it. These are very interesting instruments.

Ken, I enjoyed your interview on the Hearts of the Dulcimer podcast. Having been born, and raised, in Upstate NY, I made many trips to PA. My most memorable was a camping trip just outside the fence of a working Amish farm. The Scheitholt has been added to my list of instruments that I eventually want to play. 

 

Patricia, I love the NPR quality of the Hearts of the Dulcimer podcast, and can’t wait for more episodes.

Patricia, I forgot to mention that I really like that your podcasts are 30 minutes long. I subscribe to several excellent NPR podcasts that are an hour long, and I get behind on those because I rarely have an hour to listen. And when I listen to them in piecemeal, I lose interest. Good luck with your podcast, it seems you are off to a WAY OUT start.

We're planning to share some listeners' comments in a future episode, so if anyone is interested in this, go to http://dulcimuse.com/podcast to share your comments or suggestions.

Dusty, We've had the same experience as you ... while making our film, many people had a special story about the dulcimer. I have one too! What is it about the dulcimer that brings out these feelings and special experiences that other instruments just don't? The mountain dulcimer is truly a magical instrument ...

Patricia, guitars were always there in my life.  I do not have a genesis story of the moment I discovered the guitar. Or the piano. Or almost any other instrument.  But the dulcimer is different. I can tell you when I first heard the dulcimer and how it affected (infected?) me.  Most dulcimer players have similar stories.  It might be nice if you began collecting those stories and shared them periodically on your Podcast.  You could ask people to send you emails that you could edit and recite, people could share audio files directly, or you could interview folks as you visit different dulcimer festivals.  It could be a recurring part of your podcasts.  Many people wax poetic when talking about their first exposure to the dulcimer. And for you guys it would be like crowdsourcing but for content instead of finances.

My husband Wayne Jiang and I have started a new podcast exclusively about the mountain dulcimer called Hearts of the Dulcimer Podcast. This podcast is dedicated to everything about the mountain dulcimer: the dulcimer’s history, dulcimer music, dulcimer builders, dulcimer communities, dulcimer culture, and much, much more!


 

Hearts Of The Dulcimer Podcast - Episode 1
Scheitholt Part 1


http://bit.ly/hotdpodcast

 

In this first episode, folklorist Lucy Long and luthier Ben Seymour talk about the German scheitholt. Plus, Heidi Muller talks about Dulcimer Week in the Wallowas in Oregon.

 

For episode resources, go to: http://dulcimuse.com/podcast/resource/001.html

 

 

 

 


Hearts Of The Dulcimer Podcast - Episode 2
Joni Mitchell's Dulcimers


http://bit.ly/hotdpodcast

In episode 2, we have two stories about Joni Mitchell's dulcimers. Joellen Lapidus tells the story of selling Joni a duulcimer at the 1969 Big Sur Folk Festival. Rick Scott recalls being picked up by Joni while hitchhiking in Canada in 1971.

 

For episode resources, go to: http://dulcimuse.com/podcast/resource/002.html

 

 

 


Hearts Of The Dulcimer Podcast - Episode 3
Scheitholt Part 2


http://bit.ly/hotdpodcast

In this episode, we continue the exploration of the scheitholt:

- What kind of music was played on the scheitholt?
- Why did it fade into obscurity?
- And why is there a surge of interest in the scheitholt?

To answer these questions, Wayne spoke with Ken Koons, Ryan Koons, and Ken Longfield, who are musicians and instrument builders. They have built their own scheitholts and have done research on the instrument.
