Ken, it looks like "Uncle Eddie" came out of the display window for a personal appearance at the Homecoming.  

Did you all get to play it or anything?

Yes, he did a good job. I talked with him briefly and was surprised to see my photo in the paper. A friend from Lexington sent me the article she cut out of the newspaper.

Thanks for the link to that article.  The author sat in the room as I finished my workshop on "Playing in A" and interviewed Shelbi right after we finished.  Glad to see what he wrote was good and positive.

We missed you John. This year all the workshops were in the Codys building and the vending area was just outside of the workshop rooms. Sold one dulcimer and a bunch of books, CDs, and other accessories.

Here is an article about Hindman, Kentucky where the Hindman Dulcimer Homecoming takes place every year. The folks at the Lutheriery make quite a few dulcimers based on the J.E. Thomas pattern as well as others. Just thought some folks might find it interesting.
