Interesting Question

So, Sally of Tat's Heaven had a lovely giveaway in honor of the Feast of St. Cecilia who is the patron saint of music.  She also gave away a beautiful window sticker in celebration of her 180th post - which I am thrilled to say I won.  For entries, she asked that posters let her know what type of music they like to listen to and as I typed what used to be my answer to that question, I realized that recently my music choices have changed dramatically.  I used to love jazz singers and forty's torch songs and soft pop and rock.  Now I am starting to prefer bluegrass and mountain music (both of which I loved as a teenager) more.  Most of all, though, I love listening to real live people in the same room with me play, especially my two very musically oriented daughters.  When I read today that I had won the sticker, I remembered that over the Thanksgiving Holiday my Girl Far From Home had been playing music for me and I had recorded it.  I recorded both fiddle (forgive the vibrating strings, she needs new ones) and dulcimer, but she hadn't practiced the dulcimer in some months and so I won't post that video here but you can hear her play and sing "Who Can Sail" on her dulcimer here if you are so inclined.
