Jack Ferguson  -  Flutes and Mountain Dulcimers

Jack Ferguson

I am a Woodworker and my business, Appalachian Flutes & Dulcimers, trademark APPFLUTES, provides the opportunity to share what I make. My primary interest lies with our Country's Colonial History, specifically in reproduction or the tools, toys, and musical instruments used by our early Appalachian Region Settlers. I take a great deal of pride in my work, and guarantee customer satisfaction.

James Jones  -  Hammered Dulcimers, Appalachian Dulcimers, Celtic Harps, Irish Bouzouks, Guitars, Bowed Psalteries, Mandolins, Two-Octave Zithers, Thumb Pianos and Slit Drums

James Jones

I have been building fine custom musical instruments since 1978 in rural Bedford, Virginia. Working alone in a wood shop I designed and built, I have developed designs for ten different acoustic instruments. I am constantly working on research and development, sometimes alone, sometimes in collaboration with customers and professional musicians. I am always striving to build better quality instruments and am never content with the status quo. No assembly lines, just a lot of individual attention from start to finish. I can work with you to individualize your instrument or provide you with one I have created. I try to keep my prices affordable so music can be a part of the lives of more people.
In our increasingly materialistic world it is nice to know that music remains one of the few mediums that only exists if you decide to play. Its effect resides within both the player and the listener. I am grateful to be part of that process.

I hope you all continue to have a life full of music, learning and fun. Let me know if I can facilitate that in any way.
