What a great way to start, with a smiling Robin and her bright and melodic dulcimer! You can even hear the birds chirping outside their open window.

Ariane, Mark & I have been working on our tune and waiting on nicer/drier weather so we can go record at a cave not far from our home.  If weather doesn't cooperate, we'll make a recording someplace other than the cave and send it to you.

Ariane, is it too late to contribute a tune for the Musical Spring?  I've been really busy with work and other responsibilties but would still like to contribute if there is time and all your days aren't taken.

NEW ONLINE PROJECT "MUSICAL SPRING 2020"
Since the "Musical Advent/Christmas" online calendar was so much joy and fun there is the idea of making a new online calendar project: "Musical Spring 2020"
Filled with preferably original compositions preferably on mountain or hammered dulcimer.
It is of course possible to participate with a recording of a public domain tune ideally having a kind of "spring theme" (flowers, warmth, blossoming, awakening, cycle, love, feelings etc.).
The recordings should be newly made - so to say recorded especially for this "Spring Calendar".
You will need to upload your recording as "not listed" on youtube or soundcloud and send me the link per private message.
(In case you do not have a youtube channel you can send me your audio file (best as mp3 file) per private message and I can upload it on to my youtube channel for you.)
The beginning and ending of this "Spring Calendar" is depending on how many musicians will participate.
Most probably the "Spring Calendar" will start on Easter Sunday (April 12, 2020) and will be posted in the dulcimer Facebook groups and dulcimer forums.
I make this post already now so that you will have enough time for creating your original composition.
And now...I am looking forward to all participants! 😊
