Dr. Collins, you need to find someone to join in on the five-string banjo. Bluegrass is incomplete without some Scruggs pickin’. Still, I’m sure you all sounded terrific! Wish I was there to enjoy it.
Dr. Collins, I loved this bit of bluegrass and you recent parody of Over the Rainbow. I saw a dulcimer hanging on the wall behind you and wondered if you p,as the dulcimer as well? It looks like an A.W. Jefferys dulcimer.
Sorry, I was typing with my grandchildren on my lap and thus a few typos crept in. I was wondering if you “play” the dulcimer?
I believe music heals and fills the heart with hope. One doesn’t have to know about music or the language to enjoy or feel it. I often watch Gene Kelly singing in “singing in the rain” imagining the rain washing away my worries while enjoying the energy giving music.
My son was inpatient for 5 weeks during the summer of 2019. “Music in the Atrium days” were our best days there!!!
I surly do miss hearing/playing Bluegrass music and hoping the research into “restoring” a persons lost hearing continues and finds success.
Appointed the 16th Director of NIH by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate. He was sworn in on August 17, 2009. On June 6, 2017. President Donald Trump announced his selection of Dr. Collins to continue to serve as the NIH Director.
