Just started playing the dulcimer in 2021.  Utah native.  Some of my ancestors came from Appalachia.  I've been a drummer since 1994, a published author since 2009 and a published fiction author since 2018.  I love to hike in the Wasatch mountains with sticks I make from local trees.

Hi Student, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
