Thanks for sharing this Ken.  It brought back fond memories of Mr. Nicholas, as he was the first to introduce me to the dulcimer and spent a whole afternoon teaching me to play.

Thank you for sharing this cool video from '73, @ken-longfield !  I really like Mr. Nicholas's dulcimers and it was really something to see the other folks making creations of some type or another.

Thanks for the tag, @dusty -- except for brief times away at grad school, I've spent all my life in O-H-I-O.

Thanks for sharing this, Ken.  I want to make sure our Ohio patriot, @robin-thompson sees it.

In another dulcimer site a member shared a link to a video about folklife in Ohio. It was produced by Ohio Bell and does show some dulcimer information. Ralph Rinzler from the Smithsonian Institution is the narrator. Besides my interest in the mountain dulcimer, I am interested in many aspects of folklife and suspect others here are too. Simple Gifts Enjoy!
