Thread Name: Mill Run Dulcimer Band
Subject: RE: Mill Run Dulcimer Band
I love this band! They are one of the reasons I keep asking myself what was so great about rock music. Who needs Dave Mathews or Bruce Springsteen when there's music like MRDB's out there? Check out their version of "Cold Rain and Snow." It sends shivers down my spine every time.

And to think they live in my area! One of the great things about the DC area. For some reason, we seem to be a bluegrass and old time hub. Who'da thunk? We're lucky enough to call The Seldom Scene and Country Gentlemen, and several others, our neighbors. Doesn't quite stack up to San Francisco in the 60s as a musical haven, but close.

Yes, Keith Young, at last count, makes autoharps, mountain dulcimers and hammered dulcimers and does them all justice. And he teaches those instruments and keeps the Mill Run Dulcimer Band together. What a guy.
