I met a really nice woman at the peace rally a month or so ago and she's just sent me a wonderful tape by "Fogal and Moffett" of hammer dulcimer duets. It is really well done, beautiful music. She said she doesn't think they ever released on any lables, just sold homemade tapes at concerts in the 80's? Anyway, I was just wondering if any of you know of them and can tell me more.

Some of the selections include Wind that shakes the barley; Howling wolves/laughing banshee; Fisher's hornpipe; Planxty Johnson; and a bunch of others. If anyone wants me to, I'll post all of them.

Thanks!

kat

kat, I wonder if "Fogal" refers to Rick Fogel, a well known hammer dulcimer player and a maker of great hammers as well. A Google search on the name turns up a myriad of references, but I didn't find any that referred to a "Moffett" in the first three pages I scanned. I saw Rick back in the 80's and he had another player with him (I think maybe it was his wife), but I sure can't remember her name.

Thanks, Ivan. I suppose it might be him with the other spelling. This tape has a woman singing on it and for all I know she may be one of the dulcimer players. Thanks for looking. I appreciate it.

Rick Fogal can be found around the Seattle area. His Hammer dulcimer and hammers (which I use!) are under the name "WamDiddle"

I wondered the same thing Ivan. Thanks for looking too.

Kat it sounds like HD classics to me....tunes most HD players know well. Hope you're enjoying it!

Hey, Kat..........
I just came across this thread and am intrigued -- if you're still out there, I'd love to hear some of the tunes or find out what you learned. Thanks!
