Wading in the Shallows

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:02:27
The last Saturday in March is a special day for celebration of the Appalachian dulcimer and its spread around the world. We are most grateful for our music friends both here and abroad! Yay, International Appalachian Dulcimer Day!

The basics of Wading in the Shallows came together several weeks ago yet we've been playing with its arrangement. The tune may change even more over time. :)

Friends, thank you for the kind words about this little tune!  (We lost electricity yesterday afternoon due to high winds so am a bit late here to reply.)  This tune is one I put together several weeks ago then re-thought it then we put together an arrangement then re-thought it some more. . . rofl  

It's wonderful to see how y'all marked the holiday. dulcimer Happy IADD!  

P.S.- Ken, the camper is ours.  It last attended a music event in '12 and has been parked there since.

Very nice. I not only enjoy the music, but also the view from the window. I like that camper. Is it your"s or a neighbor's?

I'm continually charmed by the interaction between your two instruments.  You illustrate so well how listening is such an important part of playing.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful music, Robin. I have the luxury on the west coast of being a few hours behind.  So I woke up on IADD, grabbed a cup of coffee, and sat down to listen to this fine music. What a way to start my day!
