Last Sunday our family was asked to share music at the Good Samaritan nursing home in Bottineau. It was a good time to do it, before the farm jumps into full swing. At times it can be pretty difficult to find time for everyone to practice together.
During one practice session I was surprised to hear my mountain dulcimer being played. This dulcimer was made with tender loving care by Jim's Dad, who lives in New Hampshire. Grandpa and Grammy B brought it over years ago on one of their trips to visit us in Fargo. I was supposed to learn how to play it, but all the hustle and bustle of finding a place in the country and moving caused me to neglect this beautiful instrument.
I was amazed that it was so easy for Jonathan to play it. He told me once you learn one instrument it was easy to pick up another one. Well, he has added the mountain dulcimer to his list which consists of the banjo, guitar, mandolin and of course, the harmonica.
And now, for your listening pleasure ...
Thanks so much, GpB, for making us such a beautiful instrument.
Oh, and here's one more:
