Hey Kay, Stephen Seifert is coming to Milton the 25th and 26th of Sept. What are your plans?
Allegheny Echos was really exciting. Tom had a wonderful time and I felt like a beginner all over. Learning tunes by ear in DAA tuning...my brain is short wired and I don't know each tune to sing in my head really makes it more difficult for this old gal. But it certainly is good to stretch the mind. We'd like to return next year! See you next week.
Thanks again Kay. It is so nice to have you in our group, I love hearing your voice and would like to improve my singing. Until next week!
Sorry Kay, it's taken me so long to get back to you. I'm not on this site that much. It certainly is nice you found us and are part of the group. Your enthusiasm is catchy!
Good morning Kay! the dulcimer you noted is an "hourdrop" shape--sortof a combination of hourglass on one side and teardrop on the other. Folks have different names for the shape. Mine was made by David Lynch (aka "Harpmaker") and I've only had it a few months.It is walnut with a poplar top and a double back--hope to get better pics of it and a couple of other new dulcimers upsoon.
McKinnon--at least my branch of the tree--is Scottish--Isle of Skye is where you find the clan. Now you know just about as much about my geneology as I do!
Thanks for the friending--I hope to "see you" around on the various boardshere on FOTMD...
