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
