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.

Thank you, Jim. Yes, I am in Pittsburgh. :) I will try to make it to WV on the 26th, if I can get off work. Sounds like a fun event!

Thanks!!!   (Pattyfromor & Oldmdpicker)   
Piano is my primary instrument, but I've played around with guitar, slide guitar, and mandolin.     The dulcimer caught my ear a couple years back...just now finding time to spend some time with it.     Bought a banjammer from Clemmer and of the "California dulcimers".     Trying out some of the Bing Futch stuff and Jessica Comeau and Larry Conger.   

...(to Oldmdpicker....I am 66, so I understand starting a new instrument later in life :-)

Thanks for the greeting, Jim.  If you know of any dulcimer players that live around Altoona or State College, I would appreciate hearing about them.  

Pennsylvania must have more small towns dotted around the landscape than any other state.  I must admit that I don't recollect driving through Cowansburg or seeing it on a map.  Pittsburgh area, maybe?       Jim

Thanks folks! Appreciate you letting me in. I have a lot to learn about the instrument, but looking forward to it. Just need a second or third lifetime to learn all the music I want to!
