It is always exciting to uncover or bump into another dulcimer sighting, in the course of one’s daily life (and/or internet searching!)
In this video there is a visual and audio sighting of Frank Profitt playing and singing the ballad Barbara Allen from 8:46-11:09.
His part of the video footage is from the Alan Lomax Collection
The Theme: The Cultures of the Scots-Irish in the New world, the role that music plays on both sides of the Atlantic, during the passage across the sea and today.
For further bio about Frank Profitt and his music see Folk-Legacy Records.
