DJ Hamouris talks with Fiona Potts, the new editor of Dulcimer Players News (DPN). Fiona has had music in her life for as long as she can remember, starting with singing in church every Sunday, then buying a plastic recorder with a book of music from “The Lion King” when she was about 5. The recorder was upgraded to an oboe in middle school. In high school, euphonium, trombone, and English horn were added. In 2018, Fiona picked up a mountain dulcimer to replenish her soul after a difficult year. She fell in love with the instrument and the community. In May of 2023, she contacted Ashley Ernst (the previous editor of Dulcimer Players News -- see Dulcimoon Talk #20 for our interview with Ashley) and a plan was hatched to keep the quarterly print magazine going, with Fiona at the helm. Her first issue was published in August. Learn more about Dulcimer Players News at https://www.dpnews.com/
