Saturday was a grand and gloriuos day shared with friends at Ozark Heritage Day, held at Big Spring on the lovely Current River.

THe event was sponsored by the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, as a part of their ongoing challenge to not only showcase the wonders of the rivers, but to impart some knowledge about the people and history of the area.

I met a lovely lady who was kind enough not only to pose for a picture but to play her dulcimer for an audience of one. me.

She told me she had never picked up a dulcimer until she was 70, and here she is doing demonstrations to share her abilities and some wonderful history at this event.
