  1. Right now I put my dulcimers back in their case when I'm done playing, but I'd like to have get a stand for them. My main motivation is ease of access, so I can just grab one and play when I sit down in the living room. I'd also like to display them, like folks do with guitars. Does anyone have recommendations for a good stand? I did some searching, but most of what I came up with were either hammered dulcimer stands or generic instrument stands that looked like they may not work well for a dulcimer.

  6. I'm glad to see folks are finding their way here and I hope to make the site as useful to community as possible. I've had a couple requests to add events to the festivals page, and I'm happy to. My plan for the festival list (and other lists) is to have the ability for everyone to add directly to it. That's still a work in progress and may be a few months off. In the mean time, I can update the list manually. The ones on the list are just events I'm familiar with, but I want to add as many possible.
