Balis Ritchie was Jean Ritchie’s father.

Loraine Wyman collected Appalachian and Canadian folk songs in the early 20th century.

Jethro Amburgey was a prolific and influential dulcimer maker.

Bristol Taylor was a dulcimer maker, farmer and poet. I have not found any significant references to him or his work.

    I repaired a Bristol Taylor lap dulcimer in 2007, how peculiar is that?
