The Prime Timer's Valentine Banquet

Matthew put on a Valentine Dinner performance this past Friday night.  It was called the  Prime Timer' Valentine Banquet and it was held at the Midland Valley Community Church of the Nazarene.  He played some beautiful pieces for them while they finished up their dinner, and explained what a hammered dulcimer is.  Some of them had never heard one before.  They were a fun bunch to perform for, asking Matthew questions along the way.

We enjoyed talking with everyone afterwards as they continued to ask some more questions about the dulcimer and how Matthew got started.  Our little fella, Ben, was a huge hit with them all, as he smiled at them while they talked to him.  (He enjoyed listening to Daddy's music too, and bounced up and down on my lap while Matthew played!) Fun Valentine memories!
