Welcome to my neck of the woods


I built my first dulcimer from a kit, from Cripple Creek Dulcimer in Manitou Springs, CO in late 2007 (the one on the far left). I have been playing ever since the build was done in early 2008. Self taught as it were. Love to sit on the porch swing when it's warm enough and strum away. Also dabble in beekeeping. Gets harder and harder for me to keep them over winter, but I keep plugging away at it.

Hello,   I am all too familiar with Herminie,  I used to enjoy watching a polka band from their called Herminie Button box club.  I don't know if their still around.  My wife and I years ago used to go to dances there, I think it was at the Slovenian hall. Also I sang years ago in the Greek Catholic Church there.  Herminie is a wonderful town but it has been a long time since I was there.

Hey, I might know you. What's your name? I think they still have the Button Box club. Not really sure.

I used to go to the United Methodist Church right on the corner of Church St. and Pike.

Small world, isn't it?

Jed I am from Westmoreland County, just outside the small town of Herminie. If that's not a familiar town, how about Irwin? 

Here is a link to the event on this site:

We just get together to jam all day long, nothing is set time wise. Well, except lunch. We keep it very informal, we do have a time set aside for beginners. go over a few songs and hand out tab. We don't want beginners to be left out on a limb feeling they don't belong. We want all to feel welcome.

There's no one in my area that's even heard of a dulcimer let alone sell them.

I hope your schedule allows you to make it. I know you'll have a good time if you come.

Later,

Jim

Thank You ,   I have a work schedule that rotates and I am not sure yet of my weekend.  I am up in Cambria county north of Johnstown.  Where are You at ?   Does anybody in the Pittsburgh area sell dulcimers ?  Out here in Bedford , they have the "Banjo Shop" , but I don't think they sell dulcimers.   Can You tell me more of this gathering please ?
