Hi Tamsin, glad to meet you too. An old mate of mine was a biker and we used to get out to the cafe at the bottom of Box Hill now and again. Lovely down that way.I'm not as mobile now as I used to be and rarely get out of town these days, but if you're ever up this way let me know, I actually live on the A24, in Clapham.
You don't know how lucky you are finding FOTMD, I spent 30 odd years and never met another dulcimer player. Then, thanks to the interweb, I'm in touch with hundreds.You're obviously not shy in coming forward, just the attitude that will get you the most from this site. You'll find people here poised and ready to answer anything you care to ask(including such topics as bacon and the latest fashion trends in shirts).
There are a fair number of players around, but not that many in the SE, I've managed to get down to Bristol a couple of times and the main Dulcimer event of the year in Launde Abbey, worth getting along to if you develop a real interest.
Hello and welcome to the site. This is a great place to share ideas and listen to music. I hope you enjoy!
See you've met up with Marion already. Welcome to the UK dulcimer group.
When your dulcimer arrives let us know if we can help.. Marion will already have told you that there is a secret society called Nonsuch Dulcimer which networks those who love the instrument. Workshops and local self-help groups are an important part of this. We can help with music, lessons, books etc etc.
Give us a call if you need anything.
All the best.
Hi Tamsin Louisa, and welcome to the 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.
Hey Tamsin, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Welcome, Tamsin, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
Howdy and welcome to the FOTMD family!
