Rob Lackey was born and raised in the Cookson Hills of eastern Oklahoma.    After playing the guitar since a small child he discovered the dulcimer in the mid 1980’s, though he had seen them in the Arkansas Ozarks in the 1970’s.  A new love was born when he purchased his first dulcimer and began to attempt to transfer the finger style, in which he predominantly played, from the guitar to that instrument.  After coming to West Virginia he began to play the instrument in earnest again and is a favorite on the traditional music scene there doing workshops and performing at Gardner Winter Music Fest, Pattyfest, and the Hindman (Ky) Dulcimer Homecoming and the Dutchland Dulcimer Gathering.

Hey there Rob!  Thanks for the welcoming me to the group.  Sorry I didn't respond earlier - I just didn't see that folks had written me.  New to this internet stuff.  I'm already finding some discussions here very helpful.  Dulcimer folks are wonderful!

Hi Rob, thanks! I think I like playing so far, but my hands are really small so it's hard right now. I don't want to be discouraged though.

Thanks, Rob I don't know Jerry personally, and only saw him a couple of times, back in the late 90's or around 2000. I do remember that he was quick to answer every question I had at the time of purchase and I remember what an amazing musician he is. At one of the workshops, I had the Dulcimer Doctor modify the hourglass to baritone. I love it.

Gavotte was my answer to the question about my favorite song. I realized I really don't have an answer for this unless I could interpret the question as my favorite song "at that moment". I play the piano (>40 years), and it was the most recent piece I had enjoyed on the piano. I've just purchased a dulcimer, so am ready to begin collecting favorite dulcimer songs!
