Thanks, I did contact him and he wrote back, and shared an interview that had been published.
, I think I remember reading somewhere that Larry Barringer turned his luthier business over to Terry McCafferty, who is currently making excellent dulcimers out of Houston. You might consider contacting Terry.

I just joined this group. I am a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter living in Bend, Oregon. I just bought a Larry Barringer dulcimer made in 3/92 for $100 from a local thrift store. It's in beautiful shape and has a flower carved scroll. From what I have been able to gather from searching online, he was a well-known dulcimer luthier based in Texas.
I'm just interested in learning more about him, who he was, his instruments, etc...
