Ted is awesome. He is from Indiana and plays a hammer dulcimer and has a fantastic wonderful following He has a new project that just came out. And we always love to have Ted here because he is just a remarkable entertainer and performer and musician.

Ted's amazing. I know, I remember years ago, when I still... I lived in Bolivia for a long time. And when I was still in Bolivia, I remember seeing him on the Internet. I don't know if it was on Facebook or on YouTube, but one of those viral videos, it's like, wow, you know, just amazing.
Sherry Carlisle Smith 2:27
He started on YouTube. So that was probably it.
Jason Skipper 2:29
Yeah, exactly. And I did see that the Music Academy, Miller Piano Music Academy had an event just maybe a week ago. Is that right?
Sherry Carlisle Smith 2:38
They did. We had three of our recitals and we have recitals about two to three times a year. And they had them back to back last week. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I believe.
Jason Skipper 2:48
