ORDER STATUS UPDATE
We are beginning our late fall run of dulcimers and have contacted all of our customers whose orders we are now working on.
It is too early to say when this batch will be completed but we're doing our best to get them out to our patient customers as soon as we can.
Trio and Quartet Ensembles for Mountain Dulcimer Players
A lovely collection of well-crafted ensemble pieces by Madeline MacNeil is now available through us. Check it out! Maddie's Page
A good friend suggested I let you all know that I (Janita) miss teaching and seeing all my friends from the various workshops. We do not have fast enough internet here at Blue Lion to support my participation in the online workshops nor is it available due to where we live. (But on the bright side, we do have a great view of the Milky Way every evening.) I've definitely not retired and in place of getting to teach I've been working on a lot of new music for whenever it is safe for us to work together in person.
Thank you all for the emails checking in on us and we wish you all the best.
Keep playing music and stay tuned!!!
I'm happy to report that our waitlist is finally getting shorter as we are able to get instruments finished in a more timely fashion. We are currently taking orders for instruments to be included in the spring run; the first run of 2021 has all the slots filled.
When it is nearing time to begin the next run we will be contacting our waitlisted customers by chronological order of the date they contacted us. If your email address may have changed in the last year please send us an email with the new contact information so we can still get in touch with you.
Rumors notwithstanding, we have neither the desire nor intention of retiring any time soon so rest assured Blue Lion is NOT closing its doors. We are still building dulcimers and plan to keep on as long as we can; we are just not able to build as many or build them as quickly as we used to. 43 years of building guitars and dulcimers have taken their toll on our joints!
We thank you for your understanding and patience; as soon as we know more we'll post updates on this page.
