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.

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!

Thank You for the invite ,  Can You tell me more of this gathering ?  It looks like Grafton is about 3 hours south of me.  I do not know if I will have to work this weekend yet.  I have a crazy schedule.  Do You guys meet often here ?

Any shops in the Morgantown / Clarksburg area that sell Dulcimers ?
