Nonsuch Newsletter Audio Supplement, Spring 2023 No 12

Our aim is to give the Newsletter an added audio dimension. The latest edition of Dulcimer Junction continues to support the music and information printed in the Nonsuch Newsletter – and includes contributions from Nonsuch members – and links to a number of articles within the newsletter.

Among the variety of sounds in Dulcimer Junction No.12, you will hear the magical sounds of the Salterio Italiano – we’ll be visiting the Ozark Highlands Radio Dulcimer Jamboree – there’s news of a new vinyl album from the alternative indie band Tape Runs out – a preview of a track from the forthcoming album of the folk/rock opera ‘The Ballad of William Jobling’ – more dulcimer connections – and (as always) some tunes for you to listen to – and play (if you have a fancy to).

The Nonsuch Newsletter goes out to our members once a quarter, you can join here!
