ellen keirnan dulcimer player
Folkcraft: How long have you been playing the dulcimer?

Ellen: I’ve been learning how to play since 2016.

Folkcraft: When did you get your first Folkcraft dulcimer?

Ellen: I acquired my first Folkroots in 2021. It is D550 made in Windsor Ct in2003. Richard Ash added a 1 1/2 and 8 1/2 and brought it back to life for Jim Furry right before I purchased it from him.

Folkcraft: Where do you enjoy playing your dulcimer?

Ellen: I'm a member of the Windy City Dulcimer Society. We meet once a month - at least - and have started playing at a local nursing home. I also love playing my hammered dulcimers at local heritage events. I bring my Folkroots along to play as well!

Folkcraft: What other hobbies, or interests, do you have besides playing the dulcimer?

Ellen: I play lots of golf, and I’m a proud foster-failure Mom to three dogs all adopted from a local Collie rescue.
