Sorry for the very late reply, John. I haven't been on the forum for a while and missed your last comment. You asked where I lived in Wales - I was from Moylegrove/Trewyddel right down the lane from Ceibwr Bay. I loved Pembrokeshire. It was a absolutely beautiful place and with so much traditional music. I've seen your music videos on you Tube. I've loved the bagpipes from the first time I heard them as a child. They have the ancient tones... like a dulcimer does. It's an instrument that I would love to be able to play!

Great info on the Swedish scales- thanks!

I love what you did.

John, I just listened to your latest music clips- they are just delightful!

What country are these tunes from that you posted?

So pretty to listen to...

Hi John

This is awfully late, but I've just recalled you July comment that you might be prepared to join us for a play in Bristol, what with two kids at uni in Bristol and Bath.

Well this Sunday, 13th 12-4pm we're at the Nova Scotia for a dulcimer showcase - lots of great players, including John Shaw (as below), some tune playing and plenty of interesting instruments!

You'd be very welcome if you can make it.

All the best.

Geoff

Thank you for listening to my recording of Shady Grove. I'm glad you liked it. I've really enjoyed all your recordings. I just listened to Gwahoddiad, and it sounds beautiful. I lived in North Pembrokeshire for years, and it's nice to hear that lovely Welsh hymn on dulcimer. I also really liked your arrangement of An Honest Man on dulcimer, flute and Welsh pipes. Lovely!

Hello John - Listening to your latest couple of sound clips I was amazed to hear "Dydd Gwyl Dewi". I've always known it only as an English traditional song tune because the version of "John Barleycorn" sung by the great Fred Jordan has exactly the same melody. Fred came from Shropshire, so may well have been exposed to Welsh tunes from over the border!

Hello John - Greetings from another UK player. I really enjoyed all your soundclips! (Sheela O'Gara was completely unknown to me. Great tune).

Hi John

Welcome to the UK enclave of this wonderful site. Lovely to see the video - presumably of Pembrokeshire rather than the Carolinas...though there are similarities! And as for your 43 year old dulcimer, lovely job...and sounds great still.

We're into all that old stuff over here - a little nest of good players and interesting dulcimers in Bristol and N Wales. Look us out one day. Love to hear the bagpipes with it as well - can probably commandeer a hurdy gurdy or two just to fill out the drones!!

All the best. Shout of you need anything.

Geoff

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