I'm a retired IT Project Manager. My first instrument that I started to play was a baritone mountain dulcimer. Work prevented me from pursuing this instrument and eventually I joined a local string group and took up the Violin. That led to the Viola, Mandolin, Cello and classical guitar. This year I have gone back to the beginning and am now playing my standard dulcimer that I built years ago.

We are just north of Gaylord,  not too far from Torch Lake. A small world, indeed!
