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!

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.
