UserNo4:

Thanks for posting this. I've been listening to a lot of podcasts (and audiobooks) of late. I've just listened to three episodes and found them to be well done.

I'm still relatively new to the dulcimer (and the piano is my primary instrument), so I'm pulled in several directions. I like the idea of fingerpicking as well as the blues, so I enjoyed the episode on both those topics. After meeting Bing Futch at the Evart festival, I've got to listen to the episode that profiles him. And .... and ... well, there's more. It's great to hear the stories of different people, with, of course, their music.

 

Thanks for your wonderful comments! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the episode "The Art of Fingerpicking" with Linda Brockinton. She really puts a lot of soul into her music. And fun that you're also into the blues! The episodes with Bing were a lot of fun. Thanks for listening!

Yes, Joellen wrote a fun article about a wonderful musician. Wayne and I spent an afternoon with Aaron and his wife Nicole when they were visiting Portland over the holidays. We're looking forward to sharing our conversation with Aaron on the podcast.  :-)

Dusty Turtle:

Thanks, Patricia, for pointing us to Lapidus/O'Rourke interview.  There's some interesting stuff there both on Aaron's early musical development and also on how he worked with David Beede to get the dulcimer that was perfect for him.
