We've been busy here at Blue Lion and just finishing up a run of instruments. We should have some Style II's and AJ's in stock in about two to three weeks, along with a Jean Ritchie. If you're thinking of ordering a dulcimer any time soon, we will be starting our next run in about four weeks and have a few slots open for custom orders. We'll be building several instruments to take to some of the festivals Janita will be at this summer so we're limiting the number of custom orders we can build in the upcoming run.
Sometime this year (probably after the summer festival run) we hope to set aside some shop time and space to do a run of Blue Lion guitars. And since we ran out of Blue Lion dulcimer stands pretty quickly, we'll probably try and get another batch of those built in the next few months.
For those of you still under a blanket of (melting--we hope!) snow, Spring will come soon. And for those of you who are tired of the rain and snow, please feel free to send it our way--we could surely use it!
