Thanks for listening Ken! And also for being one of the first people we spoke to for our podcast. For those who may not know, Ken spoke with us about the scheitholt in episode 3.  :-)

Hi Dean,

Really glad you and your wife could come, it was great to meet you! We had a blast ... yes, we could have played longer.  :-) It was really special having both Aaron O'Rourke and Joellen Lapidus there.

Look forward to seeing you again ... let us know when you're in Portland.

Patricia

Hi Patricia! 

 

Joellen introduced you and Wayne to my wife and me at the Hollywood Monday night.  I had returned home Saturday from the Menucha Dulcimer Festival where I learned from Joellen that you were presenting your Wonderful(!) film plus a concert from Joellen and Aaron.

 

My wife was delighted to make the drive to see and hear the magic. 

 

We were not disappointed - well maybe a little: the concert could have been another three or four hours!  :D  hi5

 

 

 

Thanks for making a lasting tribute to this magical instrument and community.

I agree Dusty ... Heidi and Bob's music is wonderful. Lucky you that you got to hear them in such an intimate venue. Bob's cello together with Heidi's dulcimer is an incredible combination.

 

Dusty Turtle:

I can't wait to finish up some work so I can take the time to listen to the new podcast.

 

We had Heidi and Bob out here in Sacramento several months ago for a dulcimer workshop and house concert.  We must have had about 30 guests for the concert, all packed into a private home sitting on rented chairs.  I can't say we were comfortable, but the music transported us to a place of sweet harmony.  I love that electric dulcimer/cello thing that Bob plays.

Hearts of the Dulcimer Podcast - Episode 32
The Legendary Howie Mitchell

 http://bit.ly/hotdpodcast

32.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this episode, we present the stories and music of Howie Mitchell. An innovator of dulcimer building and playing in the 1950s and 60s, Howie is credited with spreading the idea of the 6 and half fret, the DAD Mixolydian tuning, and the chord melody style of playing dulcimer starting in the late 1950s. All three of these ideas caught on in the dulcimer world and for many players is the standard way of playing dulcimer.
