Please Excuse Our Dust: We're Looking For A New Server Home

After over 20 years, Finch Interactive has ceased hosting of business servers, which means Dulcimerica is currently in the process of relocating the media files to a new server. This page will remain here at Dulcimerica.com, unchanged. However, the process of updating each post with the new server information will take some time.

The most recent episodes will be transferred first, with the remaining episodes following suit.  With over ten years of entries, you can imagine that this will take some time and you may occasionally encounter a broken link.  We suggest that you view Dulcimerica on YouTube if you have any difficulties with watching the videos through this site.

Thanks for your patience and understanding as we embark on this lengthy project!
