I am a retired geologist. Started playing seriously in 2006 with North Harris County Dulcimer Society where lessons are offered at club meetings. The club has some inspiring Winfield champions in MD, HD and autoharp, plus guitarists, mandolins and bass. Much emphasis on jamming, but gifted teachers of music and tab.  My husband, originally from MO, had made two dulcimers in the 70's and I started on those.
They are wonderful traditional sounding dulcimers but I have also added numerous more for playing out in public.  I greatly enjoy playing in jams, and also playing for pioneer theme events, holidays, and at several assisted living communities.

Hi Mary, 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.

Welcome to FOTMD MaryN. It is good to have you aboard. I look forward to your participation in these discussions. Can I add you to my list of geologist friends? I think Janita Baker studied geology.
