On this program, Gena and Jean talk about the ways to identify musical instruments our ancestors may have played as well as their own musical instrument experiences. There is an advertisement for the Jamboree forums and lectures that the ladies will be presenting at the event. At the end of the broadcast is an instrumental version (played on saw and mandolin) of Londonderry Aire. Resources for the information discussed here can be found on the blog at http://genaandjean.blogspot.com. The photo included here is Jean's Swedish Harpeleik that had belonged to her grandfather and was her first instrument (started playing at about age 7).
