Joy, I suppose our Dulcimers could actually live for ever
....... a bit like the broom that was one hundred years old! :shock:

It only needed ten new heads & five new shafts in that time! ;)

Here's another *queezy* thought for you .......

Do you suppose people might end up like that ......... sometime in the future!!!!!!! :? :twisted:

there is an old movie here in the US, maybe there, "Solvent Green". I think that is the spelling. Sci-Fi about people being made into food when they die. Not pretty. I am moving on to a happier subject. :)

I know we are a bit of a drive away. But you could come for a good jam and a little sunshine!?!

Wait---there's sunshine there? That big yellow thing in the sky that I haven't seen for six months? I'm there!

I almost put in for a job in Washington State. I have never been on that side of the US. But maybe, someday, I will get there. It is one of my dreams to visit all four corners of the continential US. I like sunshine. Too bad you can't box it up and send us some. :D

Hey Petter,

Thanks for posting.

Were there many Dulcimer players where you used to live, in Norway - either Mt or HD.
Or did everyone play the Kantele? ;)

Only joking, as I'm sure most musicians play the Fiddle, don't they?

Woods, it looks like there is a pretty even balance between the North & the South, so far!

It also shows that the majority of active members are actually based in the USA.
Not surprising really, I suppose, when the site's sub heading is:
"America's Dulcimer Community".

It is a shame though, don't you think, that more folks from other continents don't weigh in with their own countries slant on their dulcimers?

I know we have more Canadian members than just the 2 shown. I have shipped quite a few up that way myself.

I live in central Oklahoma. There are a few players here, but I don't know their exact locations. So I just keep on getting my Tab and practice till I get the song right.
Still want to make some festivals and workshops in Texas, Arkansas and Missouri.
So hello from this Okie to one and all.

It shows that i live in the second most dulcimer populated area. LOL I seem to be the only one in my state of South Dakota. I know of some folks down in Nebraska and Iowa, the nearest a HD player an hour away, and MD players 3 hours away. But it is awfully lonely here SD. by the way, i have both HD and MD

Fascinating stuff Petter, thanks for that. :D

I'd never heard of a Langeleik before, but I've since managed to track down a maker's webpage & also a video of someone playing one, which I'm sure will interest all the Mt D players here!

:arrow: LANGELEIK – maker’s page

:arrow: LANGELEIK - video

I do hope that you, or one of your family eventually take up the playing of your great-grandfather's 'fele'!

Hey Deb, look on the bright side!
You could live in one of the areas where there are NO OTHER PLAYERS! Cheers
:shock: ;)
