That dulcimer is a real beauty!
And Elvis is such a cutie scruffy little fella. 🤎
Both instruments look good. I'm sure you have fun playing. Elvis looks good as well!
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
What a neat story about Elvis and the dulcimer! I've visited Warren's shop a couple of times and it's so nice you could have an instrument built from wood your grandpa had.
That's Elvis. He's a country boy who moved to the East Coast to live with me after my grandma died.
The dulcimer was made by Warren May from wood my grandpa had stored in his barn for forever. My mom traded the whole lot of wood in exchange for dulcimers for the grandkids. It's lovely cherry and I'm really happy with it.
Mountain dulcimer and dog-- two of my life's joys!
