Her unusual and lyrical approach to the dulcimer especially delights audiences and has even won over curmudgeons who swore they hated hammered dulcimer! Most of her traditional material has been gleaned from her two and half year sojourn in Europe with late partner Robert Almblade, whom she performed and wrote with for over a decade, as well as playing at Irish sessions around the United States. The material is largely Celtic and her involvement with that genre colors her original work.MondayDuplicate Bridge ClubILWACO - The Peninsula Duplicate Bridge Club will be starting play on Mondays at noon in the Community Room of the Ilwaco Heritage Museum, 115 Southeast Lake St. Coffee and light snacks will be provided.
