I'm up for having a jam at my house but there's NOT going to be any Spam. Pattymelts yes, Spam NoGrin.gifMarion, I've seen that video before, LOL. BTW, there is a certain gentleman who is an FOTMD member that wrote a Spam song just for me. Now I'm forever connected to that so called potted meat, LOL. I would like to say one thing about PattyFest. It was lots of fun and it is worth attending. If you're not taking a workshop you can sit and listen to great performances and they go on all day long. Also, there were impromptu jams outside the auditorium. I absolutely recommend PattyFest. I'm glad I went. I've now added harmonica to my instrument collectionGrin.gif

If not then maybe I could have one on my front porch - that'll show my very noisy neighbors that you don't mess around with a former Jersey girl! (I'm sure they'd retaliate then I'd be in big trouble!) I'd serve pattymelts!Smile.gif

Perhaps Patty from Virginia will have a jam session at her home someday. I'll drive down because she will probebly serve spam sandwiches for lunch...

I love your playing Rob! Thanks for posting this!

I have to admit when I first saw Pattyfest" I thought it was Patty from Virginia inviting all of FOTMD over to her home for a jam session and how brave she was to do that! :-)

A "patty melt" around here is a cheese burger grilled between rye bread - my favorite burger to order out (now I am hungry!)

Thanks, Rob. Being an isolated dulcimer player in southern Ontario makes me distant and unaware of the dulcimer world in the VA,Ky,NC part of the world. When I saw the word "Pattyfest" my mind went to pattymelt, which is like a tunamelt but with spam.

Thanks, everybody, I had a great time doing both the concert and the workshop.

Ken... Pattyfest is an old time music festival dedicated to the late Patty Looman. She was the "apostle" of both the lap and hammered dulcimers in north central West Virginia. She taught a lot of people and was instrumental in keeping the tradition alive.

Actually, in the raw video, my head it there on most of it; don't know what happened in the translation to Youtube

Very good, Rob! Loved your playing and singing, especially the tribute to Stephen Foster. What is a Pattyfest?

I have marked this as a favourite to come back to when my download renews in a few days. But what I have watched is fabulous. Very smooth Rob, very smooth. Well done!

Our internet is "metered" until midnight so I'm going to stay up late some night soon to watch, Rob. I'll just imagine your head is there; Jim knew we know you have a head. :D
