Thanks Scott! Wow, what a small world! Glad you were able to make it out - gonna do it again this fall sometime!
Thanks, Scott! Really looking forward to this year's gig at the Garryowen - it's going to be busy with all the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg campaign. Hope you can make it!
I hope all the difficulties with your daughter's pregnancy can be remedied soon. I can't imagine how hard this must be on you all. Take good care.
Thanks for the comment on my 1st video effort. I've only been in Fairmont for about 5 years. William Wylie was living in Beverly WV when he made the dulcimer in the video. It was made in Aug 1966 according to the label, and was number 114. I know nothing about him. I bought the instrument at the auction of what was left of Patty Looman's instruments about 2 months ago.
Hello Scott, thank you for your comment, I must confess that I did not give a thought to a copyright for Elk River, do I need to offer an apology somewhere? The Red oak sounds interesting, I have never used it for instrument building, was given some to use for hammered dulcimers, but did,nt use it because I was not happy with the possible reaction (corrosion, blue stain ect ) between the oak and the tuning pins?
