I perform traditional music of the British Isles on violin, mandolin family instruments, mountain dulcimer, and guitar, specializing in tunes popular in colonial America. On the mountain dulcimer I play DAD, DGD, and sometimes DADA with four equal strings. I play with a flatpick and use capos extensively to play the complex Celtic tunes I play on fiddle and mandolins. My biggest influence is Leo Kretzner.

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.
