Hi Paulette and Dave!

Is the information available for Tannehill 2013?  I want to post the event. You are welcome to post it yourself if you prefer. I think that I saw it was June 8 but I wondered if you had a link to a web page or something?

Thanks so much for this! 


Is everything outside?  Does rain cancel?  And, are vendors allowed, is there a charge for setting up?

Hi Dave and Paulette,  Great to see you here.  Lots of good folks on here and all with that same common interest we have.  Hope all is well with you both.  Looking forward to seeing you again for some jamming.  Won't be at the dulcimer festival this year.  It ended up on the same weekend as the Cumberland Gap festival I always attend.

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!
