Hi Honey, Good to see you here. I had lost touch with you and hope all is well. Still have that great tripod you made for the baritone?

Good folks on here, I had gotten away from the Yahoo group because of not having a moderator and the spam seemed to be getting worse with no answer to it. This is an interesting site and easier to share pics, videos, and sound clips. Donna is doing a great job with the site and it seems to be growing most every day.

Anybody Jazz Out on Psalt?

Posted on July 19, 2013 at 2:21pm 2 Comments

I see and hear a ton of old country music and church hymns... even some ancient Early Music... but does anybody ever just get crazy with their psalt and play "back up" with the radio on jazz or R&B?

I get a little bored with the same old songs or tempo or something. Maybe I'm just getting too old and have heard everything a thousand times...

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!
