Thread Name: Mill Run Dulcimer Band
Subject: RE: Mill Run Dulcimer Band
This is a lovely thread to see. Have loved their music for a long time. Their recorded versions of "Trumpet Vine" and "Roseville Fair" define those songs for me.

They wrote a song, "Marriage at the Mill," which I'm sure was written for one of their members. A few years later, two of my friends were married at Adelphi Mill in Maryland and I sang it at their wedding reception.

The Northern Virginia Carvers give free carving lessons once at month in summer at Mill Run State Park (in northern Virginia, where else?). Usually, the Mill Run Dulcimer Band is playing there -- a nice fringe benefit for volunteering to help with the carving lessons :-)
