Quotes

I'm not certain if you were aware of this, but there was a Close Kin link posted on 1/12/14 to the Everything Dulcimer Facebook page.  The link was posted by Lois Hornbostel, a professional Mountain Dulcimer musician and teacher. As a (beginner/intermediate) MD player myself, living in the mountains of Southern California, it is difficult to find other Bluegrass/Old Time musicians, since in LA, everyone wants to be a rock star.  I appreciate what you and your company are doing to keep the music alive, and bring a new generation of musicians together to appreciate the heritage of our music. I'll be keeping an eye on your company and recordings, and waiting until September to attend the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS, to be with my Kansas "musical family", to play the music that means so much to me.
