I play mountain dulcimer and guitar.  I first heard the dulcimer at a campfire, played by Thea Ennen.  I am interested in Jean Ritchie, old time music, old songs, and songwriting.

Hi Sue,

I'm sorry I didn't respond to you reaching out sooner, but I somehow missed that follower request!! Not that I post things all that often...

But, since you're interested in Jean Ritchie, it reminds me I have a few pictures of her that I ought to post to the Jean Ritchie group. So, look for that. (and we'll see how long it takes, lol!)  One attached for now. 

I'll look for you on YTube! Please do the same - my modest 'channel' has a humble number of visitors! 

ciao for now,

Hi Susan, 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.
