Hi there, is anyone writing songs on their dulcimer and performing them in your part of the world? In coffee houses or folk clubs? At festivals? Do you have dulcimer clubs like in the USA? regards Adrian
There's something intriguing about sticking an instument into a totally different context. Yes of course it may just have a novelty value but at the same time, in the hands of a good musician, a strong piece of music can still come across (as anyone who's heard Richard Thompson's "1000 years of popular music" show should testify). Anyone out there experimenting with heavy metal dulcimer or reggae dulcimer - now there's a thought!
