Thanks for the info on this festival. If only I flew.
By the way, I'm having loads of fun with my new toy, that delightful Mountain Dulcimer Hammer you sent over. I never did play the Guitar & never did get a love for all those jangling strummy strings, so I've been a little slow to warm to my Yocky, but playing it with a Hammer gives it a completely different sound & I'm sure with a bit of time & effort I'll be able to get some cool sounding tunes out of it. Many thanks for that.
Before I forget too, one reason why I find your Hammers so comfortable & easy to use is the fact that you have recessed the leathers. Some other makers just stick the leather on top of the wood, but so often the edge of the leather catches on the strings, so fair play for that design feature.
Oh yeah, & one more thing Jilly, I reckon Dulcimer Day in Duluth sounds to me like the title of a good Western! ;D
