I've been building custom designed dulcimers since 1984. I was a single mom with 2 children, working and going to school, so most of my dulcimer building was done at night, hence the name "Light o' the Moon Dulcimers.” If you or if you know of anybody who might be interested in having a custom designed heirloom dulcimer made, you may contact me at or call (828) 550-2433, Monday through Saturday, 9:00am to 9:00pm.

Hey Molly! It's Wes, of the tear drop spalted sycamore dulcimer. Just got back on this thing, hope you're doing good, looks like you're makin' some beauties these days, love the side holes on that new dulcimer of tropical birds. Take care and have a good one!

Hi Molly, nice to meet you! McCurdy is my married name (nee Lovette). My husband Jim's family is from the Philadelphia/Long Island area. Coincidentally, my Mom and Dad lived in Atlanta, not too far from Stone Mountain, until after I was born, so who knows, maybe we ARE related!

Thanks Molly. It probably wont be for a while now. I recently bought one off a member on here. But one of your dulcimers is still very much on my wish list.

G'day Molly, I was just looking at the three lovely dulcimers you have put up for sale to solve your 'little' emergency. I fear they may be well beyond my budget but i thought i would ask how much each was and the vsl of each. I am in Australia and have bought dulcimers from the US,so i am aware of shipping costs. They are all very individual and beautiful dulcimers. Helen

I was born in Magnolia and grew up in a small rural community called Mt. Holly (roughly between Magnolia and El Dorado. My folks and lots of family are still in South Arkansas. I graduated from Hendrix in 1982 and spent two more years in Conway working in the staff of the First United Methodist Church. I moved to Colorado to go to grad school and never left!
