While doing a street performance in Bridgetown Western Australia, a man named Jim gave me this antique hammered dulcimer. It is most unusual given that it is locally made and the hammered dulcimer as an instrument never really made it out to Australia.
I am hoping to restore the instrument to playable condition and do a series of concerts in the community from which it came.
Filmed December 17th 2013 at Karridale Western Australia. Merry Christmas one and all.
Some of the things I eat while on the road. Could be worse and has been.
Drat that autofocus and dead kitten on the microphone. Unfortunately got a gig tonight and leaving on tour early tomorrow so no time to film this one again.
