Kentucky Champion Hammered Dulcimerist

Our very own Kate is now Kentucky's State Hammered Dulcimer Champion. The contest is held annually at the Kentucky Music Weekend, which many of us frequent and frequently enjoy.

Kate - without practicing and on a whim! - entered the contest and won!

We are all very proud of her. Here's hoping she can take this and run with it, becoming the US Champion Player and then parlaying that power into a successful run for the Whitehouse!

She'd be the nation's first hammered dulcimer player to become president. And it'd be about time.

They sound like heaven's harps, only prettier and more folksy...]
