My husband Wayne Jiang and I met playing the dulcimer. A couple years after we got married, we produced the documentary film Hearts of the Dulcimer, ( ). In 2015, we started the podcast Hearts of the Dulcimer,  which explores the mountain dulcimer's past, present, and future. You can hear the podcast on any podcast app ... just search for Hearts of the Dulcimer . You can also listen on our website: . Every episode we create has a resource page with song lists, photos, and videos. We love living the dulcimer life!

Thanks for friending me here on FOTMD, Patricia, KG40 was fun but if it had been a week long maybe we all would have had time to visit more!

probably not attending, I am quite a long way from Scotland! Might be interested in buying a copy though. Depending who else is attending we could possibly sort out someone to pick them up and either post them out in the UK or take them to another meet up to pass on.

Hi Patricia, Go to my page here, and there are 3 pics of the old capri. If you would like more I can see what I can do. You can hear it on the videos of "On a Monday" and "Rock Salt and Nails" I have posted. Links are in the "Rocking in the Free World" group or Youtube as CherokeeCowboy.
