There's a long story about this, but the shortest version is I met the makers of my first psaltery while fundraising my Eagle Project.
Who built your bowed psaltery?
I have two psalteries now. My first one was made by the Amsdens, a couple who lived in the Rossville Tn area when I got my psaltery. (I lost track of them over the years) And my second is made by Unicorn Strings.
How long have you played the bowed psaltery?
I'v only been pursuing it seriously for about 5 months now with an ensemble at my college.
Do you perform with the bowed psaltery?
I have performed in a concert once with the Colorado College Colligium Ensemble.
Do you build bowed psalteries for sale?
Do you teach the bowed psaltery?
No, I'm still a beginner.
How did you find out about our Psaltery Strings network?
I was looking for some psaltery songs to send learn and possibly add to our next concert, and you guys popped up.
