Festival Rag - I wrote this tune in 1997 for the Gebhard Woods 10th Anniversary Dulcimer Festival

Robinson Hornpipe - I was inspired to write this song after playing with Paul Van Arsdale in 1997

No Name Waltz - Chet Skiles was well known in Schuyler County, Illinois for his dulcimer playing. In his later years, he couldn't remember the complete melody or name of this tune, so I completed it and called it "No Name Waltz"

Jim Whitehead Special - Jim Whitehead was an excellent musician friend of mine who was instrumental in composing this tune and played it on banjo. I began playing it on dulcimer after he died.

The Savannah Shuffle - My wife Ann named this tune for our friends in Savannah Georgia.

Louie's Back in Town - I because acquainted with a man named Louie who came into town occasionally. He played the guitar and we enjoyed playing music together. I wrote this tune on Banjo and was anxious to show Louie when he returned, which is why I called it "When Louie's Back in Town".

Beardstown Bound - I wrote this in 1963 when my niece, Cindy, was born. It was running through my mind as I was speeding to the hospital in Beardstown and was pulled over by a policeman.

Bill's Warm-Up - This tune began as an exercise of hammering three chords. It helps familiarize new players with the dulcimer by using different hammering patterns.

Monica's Favorite - My dad wrote the original melody to which I have added variations. This is a tune I tought to my daughter Monica and was one of her favorites when she was just learning to play.

Nathanial's Waltz - This tune was written by fiddle player Ed Cosner for his grandson Nathanial.

Bucher Reel - This is a great square dance tune and is named after my in-laws, Sherman and Elizabeth Bucher.

59 String Stomp was first player on my grandmother Robinson's old 59 string dulcimer. My dad always played this instrument, but after he suffered a stroke, he gave it to me. I write this tune after one of his dance steps called the stomp.
