Hi Jerry, I just saw that you've been on FOTMD for a dozen years now.

I also see that you live in Sheffield?  I usually go to the monthly contra dance at Dewey Hall. Maybe you go there as well?

Best wishes!

Jerry, Im very interested in the Amburgy. If you could talk to the owner and see what she is thinking she would want for it and let me know I would really appreciate it.   Thanks in advance Kevin.

Hi Jerry, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, exchange ideas about the dulcimer and to meet some good people.
