A stroll in the musical instruments museum of Brussels. Dulcimer ancestors: 26", 1'10".

  Just a look back at the 2018 session of Le Son Continu at La Châtre, Berry, France.

Bonjour Pierre-Yves, glad to hear the dulcimer is alive and well in Brittany. I was there in 2012 and met up with the wonderful John Molineux near Carhaix. Hope to get to Brittany in September.

Welcome, Pierre-Yves, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. I, too, enjoy early music on the dulcimer and I hope you will post some of those songs for us to enjoy. Hope you enjoy it here.
