Thanks for that video, Robin C-- I could live in a nest with banjo pieces and make music! :) (I actually had Jeni and Billy's music in my car's CD player just a bit ago.)

Your Galax sounds great and yes its a real catchy tune.

I went to the Beverley folk festival a few weeks ago but there wasn't a dulcimer in sight (apart from mine!)

I can actually see North Wales from my house but I didn't know the festival was on.

Come to think of it my profile picture was taken in the Conwy estuary on a little fishing trip

I will have to try and get there next year!

Thanks Tim and Jud Smile.gif

Jeni and Billy a duo now based in Nashville were on the last day of their UK tour for this year and came over to my dulcimer stand at the festival about an hour before they were due to play on stage. Billy has an original1930 Style O and I had one of my reproductions on the stand so he bought his guitar over so we could play together:

Jeni comes from Jewel Ridge in Virginia and I showed her my Galax dulcimer (her aunt lives in Galax) so they suggested we should play Chicken Ridge with the Galax (a Virginian mountain dulcimer for a song about a Virginian mountain ridge). We had a quick run through the song and then they invited me to play it with them to open their set due to start abouthalf an hourlaterSmile.gif So with just one quick run through I was on stage kicking of Jeni and Billy's set - no pressure there then 109.gif As the announcer said, they are just the nicest folk you could hope to meet!

What a great sound! If I'd only had my ears, I'd have sworn that was a fiddle kicking off the tune! And the way the crowd joins in the singing!
