Yes. We have a bowed psaltery group that meets in southeastern Connecticut, and perform at the DF#A Concert in W. Hartford every year, as well as local events.
Do you build bowed psalteries for sale?
Do you teach the bowed psaltery?
YES. Have co-written a bowed psaltery instruction book called The Psimple Psaltery Instruction Book. :) (Available on ebay).
How did you find out about our Psaltery Strings network?
an article had been written up about us in a local paper, and one of the comments was from Psaltery Strings. Glad to know about your network.

there isn't a lot of material out there for the bowed psaltery so please let the group know. My main goal in starting this site was (and remains) to grow the bowed psaltery community...the instrument is under appreciated, under exposed and under utilized and that needs to change!
Please extend an invitation to Psaltery Strings to any of your friends who play or are interested in the bowed psaltery.
