Have just driven home from an A+ event! Will write more later but want those who were not to know that a GREAT time was had there. Two days of exceptional instruction and possibly the nicest people on the planet were sharing music and ideas. I am looking forward for next year!

 Since Harvest of Dulcimers is just Saturday with Dulcimer workshops on Sunday held else where, Jeanie and I are inviting any Friends of the Bowed Psaltery who come for Harvest of Dulcimers to come to our house in Arcadia CA any time Sunday. We will hand out directions at the event.

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long

This video is a personal favorite because it shows a unique type of bowed psaltery with a gorgeous sound. When I heard it I broke out in goose bumps!
