Greetings. I am a 68 year old woman from Boise, Idaho, recently retired. I love all music genres (Celtic, jazz, blues, old mountain music, classical, pop…not so much country western. I once loved to sing and miss it terribly since my voice has taken a turn for the worse. I’m learning to play the bowed dulcimer. You can hear one on You Tube. I only know of two luthiers who build this instrument in the USA: Ken Bloom and Nic Hambas. It is an octave higher than the cello, has only three strings and has a raspy, reeding sound. I’m finding the bowing most challenging. I’m teaching myself the Tin Whistle and having fun.
Thank you for sharing your music. Patty
