…This quote from Judy Klinkhammer comes to mind:
“What a curse it is,
that the only thing you ever do
is exactly what you choose to do.”
– Judy Klinkhammer
Judy was an amazing fixture in the community of Mountain View, Arkansas, bringing and treasuring the mountain dulcimer in this northeast corner of the Ozark mountains. She loved equipping absolute beginners AND singing harmony. She was an indefatigable encourager, but as her wisdom shows, she knew that the impetus for playing must always come from the student.
Hearts of the Dulcimer Podcast features a two-episode series about her musical life that is very enjoyable.
