I had a wonderful time at Kentucky Music Week in Bardstown Kentucky!  I met new people, caught up on old friends and had some great experiences in the dulcimer world. My congratulations to Nancy Barker and all her volunteer helpers for their labor of love! I've posted some pictures on my "Photo Gallery" page.

Kentucky Music Week 2016

I have posted a new song on my FREE TAB page.  "Coleman's March". As folklore goes, Joe Coleman was a cobbler that lived in Adair County KY in 1847.  He was convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to hang. As was the custom, Joe rode to the hanging site seated on his coffin in a wagon and played this tune on his fiddle. He offered to give the fiddle to anyone who could play the tune.  Apparently someone did and the tune has been passed down through the generations.  It was later discovered that Joe's sister-in-law had lied on the witness stand and Joe Coleman had been innocent of the crime.

The Gateway Dulcimer Music Festival is only 3 weeks away!  Call Sharon for more information 618-651-8271
