One of the stops we’re going to make is in Strafford, Missouri, for Route 66 Days.  I’m very excited about this, as it’s sort of a homecoming for me.

1975 was the first time I laid eyes on a Hammer Dulcimer, and it was in Springfield, Missouri, just a few miles west of Strafford.  It was a moment of magic for me…for from the first time I heard one, I just KNEW that I HAD to have one, and learn to play it.

Now, 30+ years later, I’m still playing.  And I get to play on Route 66.  It’s a dream come true.

We’ll be playing at the Strafford Route 66 Festival on Saturday, September 12th from 12-1PM and again from 5-8PM.  We hope you’ll stop by and say hello!  And, if you want to check out the festival online, the link is here.
