Stats

I grew up in Northern VA, less than an hour away from the Shenandoah Valley and my Mom's family in WV. Music has always "played in the background" of my life; solace when needed and accompaniment in times of joy. Influenced by the times and proximity to WA DC, I grew up with an eclectic pallet of music listening; from Folk to Classical and Musical Theater with a bit of the early rock and pop thrown in. Music participation, however, was mostly through school band involvement (flute) and a short stent in a "Community Band" in Stroudsburg  PA in the mid '70s. In 1980, I moved to the better Washington, in the Pacific NW. In July of 2017, with the encouragement of Heidi Muller and Bob Webb, I began my journey of learning to play the Dulcimer. While I may never become a "performer," I am enjoying learning new musical skills and engaging with the new extended family of Dulcimer Friends. I am looking forward to retirement from my "day job" in 2019 and having more time to devote to musical and artistic pursuits.
