Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie Books & Recordings
A book which I have treasured for many years is 'Jean Ritchie's Dulcimer People'(Oak)
Can't remember where I got it from, but it made me go out and buy a dulcimer (not too common in the UK in the 70's) and I have struggled to hack a tune out of it ever since!(it looks so easy)
The book contains details of past and present players,tuning,playing styles,how to make a dulcimer,a few songs,many photos and loads more info.
