Celebrating Independance!

Fourth of July Playing at the Peterson-Dumesnil House

Click arrow to start the video

...The Fourth of July was a rainy one this year, but we managed to gather a small group to play at the Crescent Hill Celebration. The video shows a mix of video and photo shots that my son took while we played. (The background music is "Old Joe Clark" played by me on my Black Mountain Dulcimer.) We played for about 45 minutes on the porch of the Peterson-Dumesnil House while the skies lightly sprinkled the area. At least it did not pour! The rain increased later in the afternoon.
...We browsed the juried artisans booths and met Everything Dulcimer's "Harpmaker" David Lynch, from Warrensburg, MO who had some very nice instruments on display. He has recently moved from Illinois and is in the process of building a new studio in a barn that also houses him. If you are by his way this summer in your travels, be sure and give him a visit, but give him a "heads up" first at If you are interested in showing at the 2010 event, the event is interested in having luthiers participate!

...Since then....I have taken my friend up on an offer to exercise in her pool! It is so nice of her to do this and I really enjoy it. It takes the pressure off of my joints and I still get the exercise. I feel so free in the water. I plan to join the Y for this reason also.
...Coming up the 24th and 25th of July, is Kentucky Music Weekend at the Iroquois Park Amphitheater in Louisville. There will be concerts on Friday and Saturday nights, classes on Saturday morning, competitions on Saturday afternoon, and a jam afterward under the trees, just outside the amphitheater. There is a suggested donation of $10 for each evening concert. It is not required if you are not able to donate. The classes will have a fee but the rest of the activities are completely free! Come on out and join us for a great weekend of music and fun!
