It's so cool you got to see Norris Bennett in-person, Ken! 

Glad I could be of help, though unwittingly. Rob.  Hope you're feeling better!

That really was special.  Not just his stories, but his playing style.  He played dulcimer more like a frentic steel guitar with his left hand and strummed like made with his right.

Been trying to think of the name of that group for 3 days.  Thanks, Robin.  Ken that must have been really interesting to hear him.

Had the great pleasure of being in the Traditional Track at Cullowee several years back, when Norris Bennett, Ebony Hillbillies dulcimer player shared some of his stringband dulcimer playing style and experience with us.  What a great man!

For those who have never heard of The Ebony Hillbillies, a band with a mountain dulcimer, have a look.  Enjoy!
