Subject: Play dulcimer with me?
From: GUEST,Kytrad
Date: 22 Aug 01 - 02:59 PM

To celebrate the dulcimer's becoming Kentucky's state instrument, I'm presenting my old dulcimer(that came to New York with me in 1947) to the Kentucky Historical Society Museum at Frankfort. This will be done during the program on the Old Capitol Mall on the evening of Sept. 29th. Program begins at 5:00 PM and ends around 11. My set is at 7:00PM. Friends are bringing dulcimers, all tuned to the key of G, and will play and sing along with me on my last number (all chose Amazing Grace, as everyone knows it, and it's easy!).

I would love to have any dulcimer-playing Mudcatters living in the area, to come and join in. If you're not attracted by the thought of doing this- the news that Sam Bush is closing the concert may draw you there just to listen... Love to all, Jean

Congratulations and thanks for letting us know and the invitation.

All the best,

For those who might not know, the above invitation is from Jean Ritchie. Thanks, Jean. The Mudcat is honored.

I remember practicing from Jean's book, called, I think, _In Search of the Wild Dulcimer_, many years ago, with both my wooden dulcimer, and my cardboard one. The cardboard one came from Backyard Music, and over 20 years ago I used to prepare and assemble the dulcimer kits. David ....., (CRS!) the owner of the tiny company, moved from Phila to New Haven, but I would bet he's still making and selling cardboard dulcimers and kits. It's incredible to see him lead a sizable group of kids through the steps of putting a dulcimer together, and then teach them how to start playing, all in a couple of sessions over one weekend!

This is about the greatest invitation any dulcimer player could ever hope to get. I just wish Frankfort weren't so far away. I'm marking the calendar to play "Amazing Grace" around 8 p.m. that day.
I'm curious about who built that first dulcimer. Guessing from the Dulcimer Book, I'd bet it was Mr. Singleton.

What a lovely response- thanks y'all- I'll be hearing all those far-away dulcimers playing in my heart, on the 29th! But rethink your time if you want to be in synch, as it's the last song on the set, which will be forty-five minutes or so (well we can't be EXACTLY in synch, and it doesn't matter a whit).

That dulcimer was made by Jethro Amburgy of Hindman, Knott Co., KY, where Dad Ritchie was born and raised. Jethro, a second cousin once removed, was a pupil of his neighbor Ed Thomas.

Well, geez, now I've gotta go find myself a dulcimer. I only have less than a month to learn it... (we ARE talking about a mountain dulcimer, here, aren't we? I'd despair of learning hammer dulcimer in a month) Guess I know what song I'll learn first.

So what's a good dulcimer name to look for when shopping? (I don't particularly want a cardboard one)

I agree, Mudlark. You usually get what you pay for. I love my pricey Bear Meadow made for me by Dwain Wilder in Rochester. I have the black walnut standard hourglass, with planetary tuners, and where many dulcimers have heart-shaped holes, mine are shaped like mangolia blossoms. It's a beautiful instrument to play. I think that the better the instrument, the less you have to fight with it to make good music. And even a beginner deserves some of that kind of peace.

Hey, Spaw, I'll try ANY fine dulcimer! But up here north of the US border, there's really not much to see in the way of dulcimers at instrument shops or at festivals. A few months ago I went dulcimer shopping with a friend, and couldn't find even one dulcimer in Toronto that was either ready or willing to play even the simplest tune. I think that people buy these inexpensive instruments, thinking it's an easy thing to learn, but not wanting to put much investment into it, then they get frustrated, and then hang the dulcimer up over the fireplace as a pretty wall decoration.

I love to look at nice dulcimers on the web. But I love to play my Bear Meadow. I asked my friend Grit Laskin, the world-famous luthier, to examine my dulcimer for any major or minor flaws, and he declared, "There's absolutely nothing wrong with this instrument!". I know there are other great dulcimer makers out there, and I envy you guys who've tried them all, the good and the bad. I'm just glad that I got hooked up with Dwain Wilder, through Lorraine Hammond, and got an instrument I could grow into. It's a beauty.

P.S. By the way, I should mention that I learned the basics of dulcimer on one made out of a cardboard kit, while I waited several months for mine to be made. The kit dulcimer was equal or better than many other dulcimers I've played. It was an excellent way to begin.

In keeping with our various leaders and their advice as concerns not giving in to terrorist acts and carrying on with our daily routines after the tragedy at the WTC, I suggest that we all play our dulcimers or other intstruments in memory of those lost and in honor of their loved ones remaining behind.

We are taking the first step on the long road to healing and our music can make a difference!

Please, there are enough threads dealing with the actual attacks, let us keep this one purely musical. Thanks, Banjer

Personally, I like my Keith Young model. I also built a kit instrument years ago that I use when not playing with the Brandywine Dulcimer Fellowship. I like it's high, sweet, and quiet sound.

Jean, if you are still there, your book was the first one that I played from. I still have it. A few years ago, a good friend of mine used the cover of it to lay out a cross stitch pattern and stitched it for me. I'm a lefty ( but I play right handed ) and she turned it around to show you playing left handed! It hangs on my wall along with my dulcimers and I get many favorable comments on it.

Jean, are you ever going to come out with another music book that has some of the tunes from your Kentucky Christmas album on it?

The following are in my, Celebration of Life:

But your're right, some of those on the Christmas CD have not yet been published. Wintergrace, for instance. My son Jon's, A King Was Born we have in choral arrangement, sheet music, but not in a book.
