Folkcraft: How long have you been playing the dulcimer?
Dan: I’ve been playing the dulcimer since the early 1980s, including many years of playing and recording with the band Laughing Whitefish and other groups.
Folkcraft: Where do you enjoy playing your dulcimer?
Dan: Recently, I’ve been enjoying playing dulcimer around Wisconsin with friends at the Green Apple Folk Music Society and at MOO (Make Our Own) Music Gatherings. My wife Cindy and I moved to Milwaukee from Appleton, WI, in retirement and we’re having fun exploring all of the opportunities for music in the area.
Folkcraft: What other hobbies, or interests, do you have besides playing the dulcimer?
Dan: Some of my other interests are trout fishing - as an active member of Trout Unlimited, backpacking, ham radio, and looking for Lake Michigan beach glass.
