What a good new group. We were needing something new to talk about.

Here is a tune most people have heard, written in 1862 by Henry Clay Work, who also wrote many other familiar songs including Grandfathers Clock.

Here is a page with more info:

This guy here plays a sweet little version of it on the fiddle.

Here is a video of Year of Jubilo played on the dulcimer. I have from reliable authority that this is the manner dulcimer players of the time were playing: cigar box, 4 strings, fretless, with a noter across the strings. So this is more than likely the real deal right here....uh-huh.....
