It makes my day to hear that you enjoy the site. I do love the psaltery and have been thrilled to share it with others on this web site as well as in person. Hopefully we will get to meet sometime.
I don't know how much you travel, but in the spring the "Second Annual Bowed Psaltery Symphony" will be held in West Virginia. It's an all bowed psaltery weekend, ending with a concert on Sunday. More will be posted about it as time passes.
Hi Karen, Welcome! I'd love to get together. I've always wanted to try one of the Omega Strings instruments. There's someone else out near you that plays the BP, I'll have to check my email to see if I can find out who it is.I've been through Pumkintown. Once in a while we go to Haygood Mill on the 3rd Sat for the music & I've wanted to come to the Pumpkintown Opry. If you haven't met Rick Long,he's usually in Asheville twice a year for the Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands. Email me @ email@example.com & we'll arrange to get together. Janine
