G'Day all. I am well into my retirement years alone now, in an independent living village. Playing anglo concertina and Hohner melodeon. I am exploring the concept of playing a quieter instrument in preparation for transitioning into closer communal living. I have not been able to discover any gatherings of Mountain Dulcimer players down under. Hoping there are some around who would share their interest with me. A friend crafted me a large Tennessee Music Box modified but basic style as TMBs were. I have picked up a rather tired 4 string DADD hourglass. Even tempted now to order in a Cardboard Dulcimer from a respectable maker who houses them in his backyard USA 😆. So that thumbnail sketch tells you I am travelling in circles and in need of guidance. May everyone stay safe and healthy in these most troubling times.
