Kid in a candy store…

I have likened visits to historic Hindman, Kentucky as a kid in a candy store. That is the best description I can muster. Placing a one hundred year old Thomas dulcimore in your lap and strumming it has to be one of the most wonderful experiences possible. As I admire the piece I have fantasies of a young man holding one of my dulcimore in the year 2133 feeling the same way. Teasing other modern dulcimer builders when asked why he prefers traditional dulcimore will respond, “been making them this way for three hundred years, no reason to change now!”
