I think I hear a song coming out of that, "Marble Train in Tate"! I remember all the marble dust looked like snow, and it was August.
If you are interested, there is a group of dulcimer players up the road from you that meets monthly, six miles east of Jasper. And, there is a very large dulcimer group that meets weekly in Canton. It is a little farther drive for you, but I know people close to Jasper that drive there weekly. I could send you the the different groups' contact information if you send me your email address. Click here gwencaeli.com and go to my 'Contact' page to directly email me, then I will forward the info to you.
Welcome Marvin! Looks like you are smackdab in the middle of marble country - I have
Welcome, Marvin! It looks like you are smackdab in the middle of marble country! I have been to Tate and have never seen such large slabs of beautiful rock. Do you know about the dulcimer association in Georgia, NGFDA? There are about 400 members, I think, and offer great festivals.
Again, glad you have joined us!
I'm glad to hear that Marvin. Folkcraft makes a great dulcimer and other instruments. It will provide you with a lifetime of enjoyment.

Greetings from Vermont Marvin and welcome to the site. The great thing about dulcimer is there are so many ways you can play it. I say explore them all and it will all come out in the wash which style you like doing best.
Welcome, Marvin, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
Howdy and welcome to fotmd!
