Hi! My real name is Audrey Nickel, but I've been "Redwolf" on-line for so long it feels more natural to use that than my actual name!

I fell in love with American and Irish traditional music when I was a teenager (a loooong time ago!), and met my first mountain dulcimer when I worked as a volunteer at a folklife festival at the age of 13. The instrument intrigued me then, and last month, after attending a dulcimer weekend, I decided to take the plunge.

In addition to being a beginner on the dulcimer (as well as on the little Woodrow "strumstick" in my profile pic), I play the lever harp and the wire strung Irish harp. I'm primarily a singer, though, and especially love to sing Irish sean-nós (old style) music. I also sing in two choral groups: a classical Anglican church choir and a women's vocal ensemble that does a lot of traditional music.

I'm also a fluent Irish speaker, so if you have any questions about Irish tune names, etc., feel free to hit me up!

Thanks for the warm welcome, all! I know I'll have lots of questions, as I progress with this lovely instrument!

Hi Redwolf, aka Audrey, 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 meet some good people.
