“One day I walked into a store in Cincinnati and discovered the mountain dulcimer. I had no idea what it was, how it sounded, or how to play it. Though not musically talented, I bought it. Within months I chanced upon local dulcimer lessons. That eventually led me to learn from an Irish harper who also taught dulcimer, leading to my love of Irish music, which eventually led to trying my hand (or foot) at Irish dance, where I met my wife. I can safely say that my initial leap of faith in buying the mountain dulcimer changed my life.”
