This is not dulcimer related but Matt is a local Limestone County/Athens resident and he has played with us on dulcimer Saturdays at Consign World.

Dulcimentary: Dulcy Marcum

1970s Time Magazine Advertisement

I just purchased this advertisement that was in Time magazine in the 1970s on EBay. It was particularly interesting to me because it has the lady playing the mountain dulcimer traditional style with a noter and quill, something you don’t see a lot of nowadays.
