Bowed Dulcimer

I went to an Old Time Jam last night at McDaniel's college. One of the jammers was playing bowed dulcimer and wearing a pith helmet. I'm not sure which was more unusual. He said it was okay if I took his picture as long as I didn't steal his soul. I complied. 

It turns out he's the greatest living (possibly only) bowed dulcimer player alive today. Check out Ken Bloom at 

and to see him play on youtube, go to:

Just when you think you've seen it all!

  1. That is pretty surpising and wonderful. It sounds like you are living the life of one of those victorian novels. It is such a peaceful, pleasant, and rewarding existence. I like the pages you added to your blog with your albums. I was wondering how to mess with the pages option. What a great addition!
