Garey, I don't think a lot of mountain dulcimer players have heard this tune. I have heard it on hammered dulcimer, guitar, and a Chieftans version (all very fast), but am not aware of any mountain dulcimer performances or arrangements, so I think it is pretty new for our instrument.

Thanks again to everyone for the nice comments! J:-)

What wonderful and encouraging comments! The tune is usually played much faster, in a rollicking style, so it might just be one of the slowest versions around. Thanks for the validation!

You make it look so effortless! It's a beautiful tune, I haven't heard that one before.
