Don Pedi

Don Pedi is a renaissance man. He is funny, he is a visual artist and a very fine musician, he is a radio host and he teaches Tai Chi. Most people know Don as one of the best lap dulcimer players in the country. His unique style of fingering note-for-note fiddle tunes with some of the best fiddlers in the southern Appalachians has distinguished Don as a popular performer and workshop leader at festivals and music camps around the country.

Don illustrated the covers for three of Timmy's recordings.  Although he still sounds like he is from Boston, Don has been living in Western North Carolina for the last 30 years or so.
