she's back!

Last year I had to sell my Leaping Deer Dulcimer to make some bills, and sent it off to a new home at a reader's house. But this month I got Craggy Mountain Music to sponsor the blog and instead of payment via cash, we bartered for this little girl. Such a beautiful tone, and what could be more CAF then a mountain instrument with antlers!

I have only every played TK Obrien's dulcimers. Craggy Mountain Music is his site, and I highly reccomend, I have long before he agreed to support CAF.

You'll see more in the Dulcimer Webinar! Coming real soon! Got 15 more minutes filmed this week!

And what a beauty she is! My Dad made one many years ago but sold it to someone local before I could tell him I wanted it. Dang! His joy was in the making of it.

oh she's lovely. now you've got me browsing the dulcimer site. i've been wanting to try and learn the mandolin (even though i haven't really played an instrument since i was in grade school), but maybe a dulcimer would be more approachable? if i do, i will definitely be checking out your webinar.

What a beautiful instrument! I grew up playing the flute and the piano but was too much of am outdoorsy girl to be kept inside practicing even though I loved them both. Yes, I know the flute is portable but really it suffered its fate when I got braces. Impossible to play a wind instrument with a metal mouth! So, for years, I have wanted to play a string instrument. And guess what Santa brought me this year? A guitar! I'm SO excited and thank your posts in a big way for encouraging me to stop thinking about it and just do it. I'm especially excited my children will grow up in a house with live music as both my husband and I did. So, thank you for the inspiration!

Thanks for the recommend! Learning to play the dulcimer is high on my to-do list. They're so beautiful - in sight and sound.

Holy cow. I placed my order with Craggy Mountain late last night, and I just got notice that it shipped today! I guess I'd better sign up for that dulcimer lesson!
