Thanks for comment RobinC..............Norway eh ! Alright for some !       Hope you did'nt mind the Heritage comment........but have had some queries.     They are a bit similar.............fiddle edges, head shape, width, upward pointing hearts, non Eq.temp. fretboard, but as said, I made mine some while ago !

best wishes

HI John,

I've just got home from a trip to Norway and found your tune this morning.  Wonderful !  What a beautiful tribute.

Take care,

Thank you for all comments!   Can I collectively reply here to Emails received asking if I am playing one of Robin Clark's excellent Heritage dulcimers...........the answer is no........ the instrument being played is one I made a long while ago before the recent intro' of the Heritage line

Beautiful rendition of Flowres of the Forrest, John; and like the original, a fitting tribute to our friend who has passed.

Very touchingly and well played (as always), JH.  Listened a couple of times already and was inspired to look up the tune.

I am certain John is 'playing on'...
