For Christmas I received two DVDs, both featuring I.D. Stamper and dulcimers, “Sourwood Mountain Dulcimers” (1976) and “Tomorrow’s People” (1973).
Sourwood Mountain Dulcimers (1976): Among other things I.D. Stamper talks about knowing Uncle Ed Thomas and making dulcimers.

Shorter video clip (2:38 min) on YouTube posted by AppalShop.org:
Tomorrow’s People (1973): I.D. Stamper’s dulcimer music and a lively banjo/fiddle/guitar “breakdown” are accompanied by a visual essay on Appalachian people and places that mixes archival photos and current footage.
