Hi Kathy! Have you put them on youtube? Because we don't have the professional version of "ning" we can't directly load them here we have to put them out on another server that hosts videos or music and then link them here. That's what my whole donation thing was really about.
Anyway, if you use you tube or hulu or any other hosting site, they provide you what is called an "embed" code whenever you upload a video to them. That code can be copies and pasted here in the video section.
I guess, first question is did you upload them anywhere else first?

Last weekend my Dulcimer Club performed at a Retirement Village and there were about 80-100 people there. I played my Unicorn Strings Bowed Psaltery and the folks had so many questions about it, many of them had never seen one before. It was alot of fun educating them on our instrument :))

I didn't know the Westmans were making a 37 string model. Is that a custom job? Hope you can post some pictures for us.

Hi Kathy, welcome aboard! I would love to learn more about your Lucas instrument. I've heard the name, but never seen one. Hope you'll post about it on the forum.

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!
