We made the big time!
The latest issue of Dulcimer Player News is all about innovations and innovators in the dulcimer (mountain and hammer) field. My Aaron O'Rourke Fingerstyle Dulcimer was featured with a two page spread complete with photos. In addition, there was an interview with Aaron about the instrument from the musician's prospective. An original composition played on the dulcimer was included on the CD that comes with the magazine.
It's hard to believe that a year ago I was still building my first Stephens Lutherie steel string dulcimer in preparation for my trip to Kentucky Music Week, where I met Aaron. And the rest is history.
